On Thursday afternoon, a massive robbery occurred at a place in Los Palos Grandes, Caracas. Around 20 people were stripped of their belongings.

The incident occurred around 5:00 in the afternoon when two subjects, one of them armed, entered the premises and robbed customers and employees. Then they loaded the cash of the business, published El Nacional.

According to the version of the journalist Jennifer López, who was also a victim of the event, while one guarded the door and watched from a distance the people who were in the place, the other, with a revolver in hand, passed by the tables removing phones, dollars and even a laptop. Then he demanded the money from the box. “As they entered, they left,” he said.

After committing the assault, the antisocials fled on a motorcycle. The victims, for their part, went to the Municipal Police of Chacao to file the complaint.

Faced with criticism on social networks, the mayor of Chacao, Gustavo Duque, assured that the data and statistics they keep internally indicate that all types of robberies and thefts in the sector have decreased. He affirmed that security in that municipality is not an electoral campaign issue.
