A taxi ride turned into a robbery Monday morning after a driver was rushed and robbed by the driver and another passenger.
The incident unfolded around 01: 50h at Tuschen, East Bank Essequibo (EBE).
The victim, Ali Mohamed, allegedly left his sister’s residence to go home and walked to a “blacka” junction to await transport. Shortly thereafter, Toyota stopped a mauve Fielder Wagon and set out its destination.
When Ali boarded the vehicle, another unidentified man was sitting in the back behind the driver. While in the vicinity of Tuschen “blacka”, the driver turned the corner to the right of the junction and stopped.
At that time, the victim claimed to have dealt with several body aches from the said taxi driver popularly known as “Robin” and the other person.
He was given $ 20,000 cash relief after which he was thrown out of the vehicle. The two suspects repaired their escape, leaving him on the road in pain. The man, with the help of passersby, contacted the Police.
Checks were made for the suspects and the vehicle, which was in vain. Several people in the area were questioned but no useful information was received. Investigations are ongoing.
