Police are now hunting five men who reportedly broke into a Sophia, Georgetown home this morning and stole a quantity of valuables including money, mobile phones and laptops.
Based on information received from Police “C” Division Commander, Calvin Brutus, the incident occurred around 15 minutes after midnight on Wednesday.
INews was told that the victims- a 32-year-old man and his wife- were sound asleep when they were awoken by the sounds of people kicking on the door to the “A” Field Sophia home.
Upon inspecting, the male victim noted that it was too late for him to stop the unwanted entry as the five men, armed with cutlasses managed to kick in the door completely.
The perpetrators ordered that the duo remain silent and turn over all of their valuables, and as such, the now traumatized victims complied.
After the less than five minutes ordeal, the five bandits fled the scene.
Investigations are ongoing.
