THREE United Nations representatives were among victims when gunmen staged a robbery just after midday yesterday at Tandy’s Manufacturing Enterprises, Lot 19, Public Road, Mc Doom, Greater Georgetown.

Police said two visiting overseas food technologists were at the business place and were robbed when the bandits struck at about 12:20h.

Also robbed were the owners, Kurt and Vilma Denny, three of their children and six employees, Police reported.

A Police press release said the three gunmen took away a total of $385,000 in cash and cheques, three cell phones, two Lap Top computers and two digital cameras.

The bandits escaped in a waiting silver grey Lancer motorcar with registration number HB 2542, Police said.

No one was hurt in the attack, according to an employee of the business who requested anonymity for fear of reprisal.

He told the Guyana Chronicle that the trio barged into the place through the unlocked front gate and took about $4,000 from a drawer after robbing the employees and the UN personnel.

The unmasked robbers, who escaped in the motor car that was parked on the other side of the road, particularly demanded to know the names of the employees whom they robbed, he said.

Meanwhile, in another crime, 17-year-old Raymond Shivcharran and Michael Hanoman, 24, were robbed of jewellery by three men, one of whom was armed with a shotgun, about 19:00h on Tuesday.

That happened in a yard at Lord Street, Canje, Berbice, where the fleeing duo damaged a refrigerator and other household articles in a nearby house as they fired indiscrimnately while escaping.

Police later recovered a spent 12-gauge cartridge at the scene and investigations are continuing.
