Two armed bandits on Monday evening beat and robbed a Corentyne businesswoman, taking hundreds of thousands in cash and valuables.The incident occurred about 18:35h.Reports are that two masked men – one armed with a cutlass and the other with a gun –pounced on businesswoman Savitry Jagnandand, 44, at Number 72 Village, Corentyne, and demanded cash. This publication was told that at the time of the incident, Jagnandand was in a hammock with her son.The men, after entering the yard, immediately started demanding valuables. The intruders beat and bound the woman’s son, before locking him in a storeroom in the lower flat of the two-storey house. Guyana Times was told that the men then took the businesswoman into the upper flat where they further demanded cash and jewellery.This publication was told that she handed over an undisclosed quantity of jewellery along with 5,000 in cash and an electronic tablet. The bandits also took a Samsung Galaxy cellular phone and a quantity of phone cards before escaping.Up to press time, no arrest was made; however, B Division Commander, Assistant Commissioner Ian Amsterdam said that Police were looking for two men who previously committed robberies on the Number 63 Beach in April. According to him, since then Police have stepped up their surveillance and conducted several searches in the area.“They went quiet for a while, but we are suspecting that they would have committed these two robberies, but we are not getting a description as to how they look,” he told this publication.In April, a vehicle operator was robbed of valuables which included cellular phones, cash, and jewellery while driving along a lonely spot on the Number 63 Beach. During that same period, a couple relaxing on the beach also suffered a similar fate. On both occasions, the perpetrators were a man carrying a shotgun and another one carrying a cutlass.
SOCCER: Finn Harps titles hopes have been dealt a blow after Athlone Town held Ollie Horgan’s side at Finn Park.Harps were dealt a devastating blow when they were reduced to ten men when Josh Mailey was shown a straight red card. Mailey’s tackle on Derek Doyle was deemed reckless and nasty by referee John McLaughlin.Despite the setback Harps were denied what looked like a stonewall penalty when Raymond Foy was fouled inside the penalty area.John McLaughlin waved away the appeals from the Harps player, while assistant manager James Gallagher was furious and vented his fury at fourth official Shane O’Brien.The sides went in at the interval all level with Harps still reeling from Mailey’s dismissal. In the second-half Athlone pressed looking for the breakthrough but a resolute Harps defence held firm.Ollie Horgan sent on Michael Funston and Kevin McHugh and the pair combined to create an opportunity for Nathan Boyle.His shot struck the inside of the post and rolled across before McHugh’s follow up effort was blocked.Athlone then forced Ciaran Gallagher into a smart save as the visitors searched for a winner.Harps continued to press for a winner but were unable to find a breakthrough and the result coupled with their defeat at UCD has dented their titles hopes.Elsewhere, Shelbourne and Wexford played out a scoreless draw at Tolka Park. Shelbourne are now firmly in the race for promotion, while UCD came from behind to beat Cabinteely 3-1.Pictures by Joe Boland.TEN-MAN HARPS HELD AT HOME TO ATHLONE TOWN was last modified: July 31st, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Home-page Sportnews
