Police investigators are probing the gruesome murder of the owner of the Jade Stone “Black Chiney” Chinese restaurant which is located on Mandela Avenue. The man was beaten and chopped to death just after 12:30 this morning.
The dead man has been identified as 35-year-old, Zhenjz Su. His bloodied body was discovered in the kitchen area of the restaurant after the robbery.
According to reports, the man’s wife was confronted by the bandits and she was badly beaten about her body and to her face. She reportedly lost a number of teeth as she was beaten to the mouth by the men who escaped with an undisclosed sum of money.
The woman was beaten into an unconscious state and it was only when she regained consciousness that she realized that her husband had been killed. His feet and hands were tied and his mouth was gagged.
The family lived above the restaurant. Their two young children were at home at the time but were not harmed. The badly beaten woman has since been admitted to a hospital with her injuries.
Police investigators believe that the attackers may be persons from nearby areas who are familiar with the restaurant and the owners.
Guyana has recorded over 90 murders for this year already.
