POLICE INVOLVED SHOOTING[] – The police have managed to arrest three men, who are suspected of executing a spate of armed robberies on Thursday evening on the East Bank of Berbice.

A police report noted that at about 20:30 hrs on Thursday April 02, three men, one of whom was armed with a firearm and the others with cutlasses, entered the home of Chandrajeet Persaud, 51 years, of Glasgow Housing Scheme, EBB, through the open doorway.

They held him up and demanded valuables; however Persaud resisted and was shot to his back in the process. He has been admitted to hospital for medical treatment.

The police report detailed that the three men then proceeded to another home at Glasgow where they confronted Stanley McKenzie as he was parking his motor vehicle.

They took away his vehicle, a cell phone and escaped. It is suspected that the perpetrators then went to a home at No. 2 Village, Canje, where they entered through the open door and held up the family and took away a quantity of jewellery and a sum of cash; and then to the nearby Caribbean Cuisine Restaurant where they held up the bartender and took away his cell phone and $20,000 and escaped.

The men then went to Canefield, Canje, where they entered the home of Emaan Singh and family and held them up and took away jewellery, cash, and a cell phone and escaped. The stolen motor vehicle was found abandoned in Cumberland, Canje.

Police noted that three men have been arrested and are in police custody assisting with the investigations.
