Victim overpowers bandit in attempted daylight robbery


future-crime-gun[] – Things didn’t go as planned on Wednesday, May 27 for a gunman after his victim managed to relieve him of his firearm at a city hotel.

According to a report from the Guyana Police Force, at about 09:30hrs, a man armed with a handgun held up a Brazilian National at a city hotel and demanded cash.

It was noted that the intended victim put up a resistance and managed to over-power the man who has been handed over to the police.

The Brazillian was also able to relieve the man of an unlicensed 9mm pistol with 5 rounds that he had in his possession. He is in custody and charges will be laid shortly.


  1. Who are we to be loyal to? God and principle or people who are fallible? Why postulate that Mr. Granger will pardon a person who committed robbery with a weapon? Let us lay aside the weight and move our land forward. Love for the people of Guyana.

  2. The Brazilian is alive and for that I say thank God. Point me in the direction of your “history” where a victim was able to fend off an armed bandit.

  3. Everybody wants change, before you have change, you have to change your self, this is why Bharat is in court,i am Indian,i think Grainger will do a fantastic job, if you leave a comment, leave it without prejudice

  4. Mr/Mrs/Ms Free
    You are not free! You are in mental bondage. You need to allow yourself to be release from that bondage. Bob Marley sung some powerful words in the song Redemption Song
    “Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
    None but ourselves can free our minds.
    Have no fear for atomic energy,
    ‘Cause none of them can stop the time
    How long shall they kill our prophets,
    While we stand aside and look
    Oh! Some say it’s just a part of it:
    We’ve got to fulfill de book.
    Won’t you help me sing
    these songs of freedom
    Are all I ever have:
    Redemption Song

  5. It looks as though you are the one who should be in school. Your illiteracy is showing. Please google the term non violent offender and see if you can understand the meaning. Guyana is beautiful so please keep the ugly to yourself. I will pray that God grant you wisdom and understanding.

  6. Rick at least he will not let child murderers walk like Ramotar. Did you consider that before you made your snide comment?

  7. Rick you are right on target. Anyway all I have to say is this is just the beginning of the bad days ahead. All of it since the 11of May. History repeating itself.

  8. Too many Guns in the wrong hands, untrained ppl criminals, and ppl who have them for style,,jail them for gun crimes,,

  9. The new Government should implement stiffer penalties for having unlicensed gun.
    This is very bad for visitors to the Country.
