A Clerk at a Superbet establishment on the West Bank of Demerara was on Saturday robbed of a quantity of cash.
The incident occurred at about 18:45 at the Superbet location at First Street Potentia, WBD.
The police said the 29-year-old clerk was about to secure the front door of the Superbet shop with a padlock when she heard a male voice saying “Don’t move!” and the person grabbed her black shoulder bag, which contained $162,700 cash – the day’s earnings – that belongs to the owner of the business, then made good his escape on foot in a northern direction.
The police were summoned, responded, and made checks for the suspect but he was not located.
The investigation is ongoing.
