Overseas based Guyanese robbed, wife raped
Horror holiday for Canadian couple…
The Guyana holidays for a young Canadian-based couple got off to the most horrible start thanks to bandits who attacked them, hours after they had arrived in the land of many waters.
The two who are stopping at a West Coast Demerara address were on their way home from a barbeque on Saturday night when three bandits robbed them of cash and jewellery before subjecting the female to a savage sexual assault, while her husband watched helplessly.
Reports reaching this newspaper stated that the 27-year old male visitor was driving his brother’s minibus heading home with his 29-year old wife when another car bumped into the back of their vehicle.
Thinking that it was a normal accident, the visitor and his wife stopped and came out of the bus to examine the damage with a view to settling with the other motorist.
Within seconds they were pounced upon by three men who were carrying guns.
The men held up the visitors and bundled them into their car, while one of them took control of the mini bus. The gang proceeded to a deserted spot where the assault took place.
During the attack, the men stripped the bus of its music set, valued at $1.5M.
This was after they had relieved the couple of their cellular phone, $2000 in Canadian currency and jewellery to the value of $6000 Canadian dollars.
According to reports reaching this newspaper, the husband was tied up and thrown into a nearby bush while his wife was left to the mercy of the bandits.
When they were done, the bandits tied up the woman also and threw her into the bushes with her husband.
It appears as if the attack was well planned, since before leaving, the men told the couple that they were sent by someone to carry out the attack. After the men left, the visiting couple managed to free themselves and make their way to safety.
The matter was subsequently reported to the police but so far no one has been arrested.
