VIDEO.  Terrorized a student with a knife at 73 and 10

The impunity with which criminals act in the frequent robberies that are recorded in the City, had a new example during the early hours of Saturday in a house in Villa Elvira. The victim, a 24-year-old student, was very frightened by the episode.

It is not for less: in the period that the robbery lasted, he was at the mercy of a thief armed with a knife who, judging by the images taken by the security cameras installed in the area where the event took place, does not exceed 18 years.

A friend of the victim recounted how the sequence was and assured that it is not the first time they have suffered an episode of insecurity in that building. Frontistas from the neighborhood, meanwhile, supported the comment by pointing out that “for more or less six months you can no longer walk down the street at night.”

In that sector of the City, in January there were at least five cases. And, a few blocks away but on the side of the urban area, a woman was injured in her left hand by a shot in the middle of an armed assault on her home.


According to a companion of the victim, who is also from the interior and lives with her in that place, the intruder acted without accomplices. “The jet (sic) got into her through the window, she woke up with a knife on her body and threatened her so that she would give him belongings. It was terrible”, described Sofía who was not in the house at the time of the robbery.

Meanwhile, he pointed out that “another girl was in another room, but the criminal only acted in my friend’s room, which is the one with a window onto a patio.” Along these lines, he specified that the thief “entered and escaped through the same place”, while warning: “If he decided to go inside the house, perhaps we would have been regretting something much more serious.”

Fortunately, the student was unable or unwilling to react to the presence of the intruder. Sofia explained that it was probably due to the drowsy state she was in. “It’s like she was still half asleep, she didn’t react but was capable of hitting her, hurt her or something much more serious,” she said.

On the other hand, he pointed out that “they took a cell phone, some belongings and cash.” And he added that it is not the first time that one of the tenants who rents in that property suffers an act of insecurity. “This is already a request for help, literally you can no longer live in the City. Three months ago, on the corner of my house, two kids rushed me with a gun to steal what I was carrying,” the young woman described.

“You can no longer be calm inside a house or sleeping, as happened to my partner. We ask that the mayor, the police and Justice do something, this situation is very difficult, “he claimed.

As was said, in Villa Elvira robberies are not a novelty. Even at the beginning of January, they entered and ransacked the home of a policeman in 98 between 10 and 11. This week, in a house of 12 bis and 78, a family had to interrupt their vacations due to a wiretap. Romina Ceci, victim of the incident, stated that “they robbed us.”

Meanwhile, just six days apart, two subjects were apprehended while trying to force their way into two buildings. One was in 92 between 2 and 3, where the suspect was “hunted” by neighbors. And, in 119 between 89 and 90, a wanted criminal fell since 2015.
