ARMED with a handgun and a knife, two bandits on BMX bicycles on Sunday robbed a 47-year-old security guard on the Rome Access Road at Mc Doom, East Bank Demerara.
The man, who lives at Pouderoyen, West Bank Demerara, was on his way to work when the incident occurred.
He told the police that it was around 20:00hrs when it happened, and that all he knew was that he felt a chuck from behind.
He said that it was after falling to the ground that he saw the men, who were still on their bicycles.
As he lay there, the man said, he saw one of the men `whip out’ a black handgun and the other a knife, and together they demanded that he give them whatever money he had on him and his cell-phone.
They also rummaged his pockets and relieved him of other personal belongings before making good their escape.
He estimates he has lost close to $97,000 in valuables.
