Patients waiting for the health center’s opening hours were victims of criminals in the Itaquari district of Kariasica. In addition to taking cell phones, they also made other burglaries.

Witnesses said the center was opening around 8 a.m., when two suspects approached on a motorbike and announced the robbery. They gave in to the people who were in line and there was a lot of rush.

Those who were unable to leave, ended up losing their cell phones and other personal belongings. They said that these same criminals tried to steal a car in front of the site.
