This latest brutal robbery came in the wake of another that occurred just a few days ago when a father of six was killed in what appeared to be a hit after two men entered his Belvedere Corentyne home in Berbice.
Patrick Mohabir, 42, of Lot 9 Belvedere Housing Scheme, Corentyne was killed in that attack after he ws shot and chopped about the body.
According to an earlier INews report on this incident, two men who were armed with a firearm and a cutlass, entered Mohabir’s two storey building through a window on the upper flat. The now dead man reportedly heard sounds and went to check and in so doing, he was confronted by the two bandits.
However, despite his wife, Shabeena Ahmad offering them money, they reportedly shot and chopped the businessman then escape with two mobile phones. No arrests have been made so far as police continue their investigations.
A woman was also burnt to death in another robbery in Berbice a few days ago, when fleeing bandits set her home on fire leaving her tied up and trapped in the building.
There have been a spate of other robberies, especially in the Berbice area, since the start of this year.
