One man is in police custody and is expected to be placed before the Court sometime this week after he reportedly robbed a Constable attached to the Guyana Police Force on Saturday last.
Based on information received, the Constable was reportedly proceeding along Hinck Street, Georgetown on foot at around 09:15hrs when the suspect reportedly approached him armed with a pair of shears.
The perpetrator allegedly demanded that the 23-year-old officer- who was off-duty at the time- to hand over his valuables.
Police say that their colleague acted swiftly in turning over his mobile phone and $240 in cash to the man, who then quickly fled the scene.
However, while making his report of the incident, the officer had made significant observations of his attacker and so shortly after, a team headed by a Cadet Officer, visited the Stabroek Market area where the suspect was identified.
INews understands that he was also found in possession of the stolen mobile phone.
