Two women, aged 58 and 63, were last evening robbed at gunpoint as they were walking home.
The incident occurred at around 20:00hrs at Austin Street, Campbellville, Georgetown.
Reports are that the women were walking when two suspects approached on a motorcycle.
The pillion rider dismounted the bike, pointed the handgun at the women and said “don’t say a word, give me de bags”.
The bandits collected the women’s handbags which collectively contained $45,000 in cash.
They then made good their escape.
