Police investigators are probing two early morning armed robberies that were committed on two Enmore families early this morning, allegedly by three masked males, all of whom were armed with handguns.
In a statement, the Police Force said that investigations have revealed that about 2 o’ clock this morning, Chatterpaul Persaud and his wife were confronted by the suspects who gained entry into their one flat home via a southern door and relieved them of a quantity of gold jewellery and a sum of cash.
During the heist, Persaud was dealt several lashes to his head after which the couple’s hands were bound.
The bandits then proceeded to Persaud parent’s home which is adjacent and allegedly relieved his 51 year-old mother of cash and jewellery. Her husband, who was sleeping in another room, was not disturbed.
Chatterpaul Persaud received treatment at the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital and was sent away.
Investigators are currently obtaining statements and processing the scenes.
