Quick action by members of the Guyana Police Force this afternoon resulted in the arrest of twomen who were spotted acting “suspiciously” in an abandoned house in the Republic Park area.
Police responded to calls from residents in the area that the two men were spotted hiding out in an abandoned house.
The Police arrived on the scene with three patrols and cornered the men.
They were both arrested.
A senior Police Officer said no weapon was found on the men or anywhere close to the scene but at least one of the men is a “known character”, who had previously faced robbery charges in the court and has been fingered in other criminal incidents.
They are both believed to be from the Agricola community.
Police investigators intend to put the men on an identification parade as they investigate recent robbery incidents in the city.
