14-year-old girl disarms gun-toting bandit

A 14-year-old high school girl used a cutlass to disarm a man who had just robbed her family at gunpoint. The incident occurred on Wednesday evening at Stanleytown, New Amsterdam, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne).

Reports are that three men entered the home of Gordon Gomes around 20:00h on Wednesday and carried out the attack before one was caught in his attempt to flee. According to Gomes, the workers who were involved in a construction project at his home had just completed it and were paid before leaving. Subsequently, he was on his veranda and saw three men approaching, but he left to go inside without paying much attention to them. “When I go inside something say look and see where these men going so I turned around and looked through the window, but did not see them so I go to the door and look and…no one.”

Gomes said when he went on to the veranda again he saw two of the men at his front door and one at the back of his home. At the time, both doors were open. “When they come in, they tell them girls to lie on the floor, but they didn’t and then they ask me for money and I told them that I don’t have any.”
According to the overseas-based Guyanese who is home to continue construction on his new house, one of the three robbers ordered the one with the gun to shoot. With the gun pointed at Gomes, the trigger was pulled several times, but the weapon did not go off. “So I run out on the veranda and start shouting out to the neighbours for thief and I call out to the Coast Guard for help.”

Amid Gomes’ shouts, two of the intruders fled while the other who held the gun went into a bedroom and removed a wallet, a tablet and gold earrings. “He open up the draw and tumbling up and then he run outside with the things in his hand and run out the front door.”

It was at this point that the 14-year-old made her move to disarm him and leave him almost helpless. Gomes said that she picked up a cutlass, went to the back landing, and threw the cutlass, using the sharp edged instrument as a missile. The escaping man wobbled before falling after being hit. Gomes said he then asked his wife for another cutlass and went downstairs. “He fall down and the gun on the ground with everything that he take from the house, so I give he some good broadside, but I slip in the drain and he take the cutlass and chop me.”

Residents and officers from the Coast Guard rushed to Gomes’ rescue and took custody of the robber.  Gomes was rushed to the New Amsterdam Hospital where he was treated and sent away. There are reports that as he left for the hospital, residents took care of the robber. He was handed over to Police after receiving a ‘thief man’s’ welcome.

You don't let an opportunity pass you without giving credit to the useless government. At least someone heard my plea to pick your tool and defend your family. This little girl is my hero. Now, many more Guyanese will follow suit and do the same.
