first_imgA teller of a city bank has been left traumatised after she was attacked and robbed in a minibus by a lone bandit at Agricola, Greater Georgetown.The 20-year-old woman, of Zeelugt, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), was relieved of her mobile phone about 13:45h on Monday. Guyana Times was told that the woman boarded the bus at the Route 32 minibus park. She then took out her cellular phone and was texting someone. A male passenger who was seated in the back seat of the minibus and holding a bird cage then requested a stop at Agricola.As he exited the minibus, he grabbed the woman’s phone – an iPhone 7 – valued over $100,000.Speaking with this publication, the young woman relayed that in an attempt to save her phone, she held onto the perpetrator’s hand and even bit him in the process.“It was so unexpected that he was able to grab the phone from my hand, but I tried to hold onto it, he was stronger though, so I bit him, but he still pulled away and ran out of the bus,” she related.She said that she was even more distressed, since no other passenger in the minibus attempted to assist her, even as she pleaded with the driver of the minibus to drive behind the suspect. “He ran out and I started to yell, but nobody tried to help … a man was riding on a bicycle, so I screamed and told the man to stop him, but the man ignored me … I then asked the bus driver to drive behind him, but he refused,” the woman related.She said that she went to the Providence Police Station where she attempted to file a report, but was sent to the Ruimveldt Police Station. Police are investigating.last_img
