Police are investigating an armed robbery committed on 49-year-old Mohan Lall and his 24-year-old daughter Salome Lall, who is an Accountant, of Chateau Margot, East Coast Demerara. The incident occurred about 20:30hrs last night when the father and daughter were robbed of cash and a cellular phone by two male suspects who were armed with a handgun and a pair of scissors.
Investigation revealed that the victims were sitting in the lower flat of their two storey house, when the suspects pounced via an open window and held them at gunpoint. The bandits took them to the upper flat and relieved them of their valuables, during which process one of the suspects inflicted a wound to Mohan Lall’s head with the scissors. The bandits then locked the victims in a room and made good their escape.
The victim (Mohan Lall) was escorted to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation where he was treated and sent away. No arrests have yet been made.
