The months of June and July were, for the inhabitants of La Loma, a true ordeal. The frequent attacks by motorcycle jets and the “return” of the entrances plunged the neighborhood into an increasingly alarming situation.
In the last hours, a new event struck again this sector of the urban area that had cases of great repercussion so far this year. The recent robbery, whose victim is a 38-year-old woman, did not have violence as a determining factor, but is part of the same problem.
To the point that the residents of the victim, interviewed yesterday afternoon by this newspaper, did not hesitate to warn that “La Loma is like the entire City, set on fire. Here the most serious problem is that they rob you every 20 meters ”.
According to official sources, on Sunday afternoon, around 5 p.m., three armed criminals forcibly entered a house located at 45 between 29 and 30. They broke the main door and quickly searched for the owner, whom they reduced with threats.
They were looking for cash and got it in a few seconds. When she was overcome, the woman offered no resistance and handed them 100,000 pesos that she kept in the building, the spokespersons revealed.
The robbery lasted only minutes and, fortunately, there were no blows. Loot in hand, the gang escaped in an unknown direction. Now the police are looking for cameras in the area to be able to identify the suspects and determine if a room was waiting for them outside in a vehicle.
It should be remembered that, about four blocks from this place, a man defended himself to the shots of a savage assault and killed the thief, a minor identified as “Torrejita”. That sad episode occurred in 49 between 27 and 28, when the 15-year-old teenager entered the farm shooting after trying to use a 7-year-old boy as a hostage.
Wounded after the frustrated incursion, Torrejita got on his accomplice’s motorcycle and tried to flee. The driver abandoned him at 39 and 28, where the minor finally died.
In late May, a 72-year-old man and his wife were shocked when at their home of 43 between 28 and 29 they discovered that they were not alone. There were three of them, stocky, and they beat the retiree mercilessly. They escaped with 114 thousand pesos and various jewels.
A month earlier, in 45 between 20 and 21, two Federal Police guards shot each other with alleged thieves at the door of Hebe de Bonafini’s house.
