Two armed bandits on Friday last robbed the Lucky Central Supermarket, located at Aubrey Barker Road, South Ruimveldt, Georgetown, and assaulted the proprietors during the daring robbery.
One of the owners, who requested not to be named, said that the incident occurred at about 19:30h.
He told MTV News Update that after the men stormed the supermarket, one of the suspects shot the Security Guard twice in his leg and relieved him of his firearm.
He then moved into the supermarket, where he assaulted him before escaping with an undisclosed amount of cash. It is alleged that the men had previously attempted to rob another supermarket but were unsuccessful.
