Two security guards were robbed of their guns and a quantity of cash while they were about to make a deposit at Demerara Bank’s branch at Le Resouvennir, East Coast Demerara Monday night. 

Police said that at about 2000h. last night Monday May 23, 2016, Cleveland Pyle, 22 years, and Damion Pearce, 24 years, security guards attached to a private security service, were making a night deposit at a Bank at Le Ressouvenir when they were attacked by a man armed with a firearm.
The perpetrator shot Damion Pearce to his left foot and took away the night deposit bag which contained an undisclosed sum of cash that had been collected from business places, and two .32 revolvers with 10 rounds and escaped in a motor car driven by an accomplice.
Damion Pearce has been admitted to hospital, as the investigations continue.
