Gun­man shoots mo­ney chan­ger in fast food out­let

Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

In the la­test bra­zen acts by cri­mi­nals, an un­mas­ked gun­man wal­ked in­to a Popeye’s out­let in Wa­ter Street at last week­end and pum­ped a bul­let in­to a mo­ney chan­ger who was di­ning with his gir­lfriend.

Hours la­ter, ban­dits on a mo­tor­cy­cle rob­bed the At­lan­tic Pe­tro­le­um fil­ling sta­ti­on at Ec­cles, East Bank De­me­ra­ra. Shot and in a cri­ti­cal con­di­ti­on is mo­ney-cha­ger Vish­wahnauth Nouw­bat, al­so known as ‘Vis­hal’, 36, of ‘C’ Field Sop­hia. He un­der­went emer­g­en­cy sur­gery at the Ge­or­ge­to­wn Pu­blic Hos­pi­tal Cor­po­ra­ti­on. Re­ports are that the fa­ther of one and his gir­lfriend we­re ha­ving a me­al when the gun­man, who re­por­ted­ly had an ac­com­pli­ce wai­ting out­si­de, ap­pro­a­ched Nouw­bat and or­de­red him to hand over mo­ney. The man’s gir­lfriend said that he re­fu­sed to com­ply, and the gun­man shot her part­ner to the left si­de ab­do­men. The wo­man, who was not in­ju­red, said that ban­dit fled wit­hout ta­king any­thing.

Eye­wit­nes­ses al­le­ged that the ban­dits had to ha­ve been wat­ching Nouw­bat, who has been ply­ing his tra­de out­si­de the res­tau­rant for a num­ber of ye­ars. Po­li­ce in­ves­ti­ga­tors we­re on the sce­ne trying to re­view CCTV foot­a­ge. Ho­we­ver, staf­fers we­re re­por­ted­ly una­ble to lo­ca­te sec­ti­ons of the foot­a­ge lin­ked to the bot­ched rob­be­ry. Fa­mi­ly mem­bers of Nouw­bat told this pu­bli­ca­ti­on that this is the se­cond ti­me he had been shot du­ring a rob­be­ry.
