The robber came for the cash. Under the threat of his weapon, he is given 400 euros and flees, disturbed by a witness, leaving behind him two panting victims (1 day of ITT each).

Officers from the Property Damage Unit (UAB) pick up the investigation.

His victim is this time around sixty years old and had to pay the sum of 700 euros to his attacker.
