“Shalman Rahid, thirty two years old businessman of George Price Highway, was closing his business establishment. He was in the company of his employee Leonel Gentle and both of them were held up by two gunmen with masks. Both of them were taken to the premises of Mr Rahid where they were relieved of their property and their money and cell phone to the total of two thousand two hundred and twenty nine dollars. Mr. Rahid received an injury to the left side of the jaw, meanwhile Mr. Gentle just complained of minor injuries. So, this was a robbery that happened around eight thirty.”
