first_img– escape with undisclosed sum of cashFour armed men stormed the Shell Service Station at Mc Doom, Greater Georgetown in the wee hours of Thursday, and carted off an undisclosed sum of cash.The Shell Service Station at Mc DoomGuyana Times was told that at about 3:15h, the pump attendant, a resident of Good Hope, East Coast Demerara, and the cashier were performing their duties when the four men suddenly materialised at the location. Two of the men whipped out guns from their pants waist, held the pump attendant at gunpoint, and relieved him of an undisclosed sum of cash.The cashier who was in the supermarket was meantime approached by the other two men, who pretended to be customers requesting a pack of cigarettes.As he opened a section of the grill to give the men the cigarettes, they pointed guns at him and demanded the cash kept in a box under the register. Without hesitation, and being fearful for his life, the cashier immediately complied with the men’s demand. The men then made good their escape on foot.Guyana Times understands that the robbery might have been an inside job, because the robbers knew exactly where the money was kept in the supermarket.The pump attendant and the cashier were questioned. Police have managed to secure the CCTV footage from the service station, and were, up to late Thursday evening, reviewing same. Police investigation into this incident are continuing.This is not the first time this service station has been robbed by armed men. Back in November, 2017, three pump attendants were robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash by a lone gunman.It was reported that the gunman, who was dressed in camouflage clothing and had his face partially concealed by a hat, had entered the gas station and approached the women, who were standing on the eastern side of the compound. He then held them at gunpoint, relieved them of the cash they had in their possession, and then escaped on foot. No one was arrested for that robbery.last_img read more

He’s scored plenty of goals in a difficult season for QPR.”With 20-goal man Harry Kane in the England U21 squad, Austin is the top scoring English striker by some way among Hodgson’s other picks.Wayne Rooney has scored 12 goals, with Danny Welbeck and Jamie Vardy both on four for the Premier League season.“[Roy Hodgson] has got some really good, interesting decisions to make, but they’re the kind that you look forward to making because so many people are putting themselves in the window to be in the England squad,” Hart added.Joe Hart relies on the UK’s no.1 shampoo Head & Shoulders to feel prepared and confident for the game ahead.
