A Point Fortin businessman was robbed of $140,000 outside a bank on Monday morning.
Nazir Bachan, managing director of a trading company at Mahaica, was walking towards the bank along the Point Fortin main road, when he was attacked around 7.15am.
Police said the man walked up to Bachan and snatched the bag containing the money. The bandit escaped by running through the traffic.
Point Fortin police launched a manhunt for the suspect, but up to last evening he was not found.
