MÉRIDA.— In broad daylight, a woman suffered an armed robbery in a busy shopping plaza in northern Mérida.

Modus Operandi of the assault
The affected person explains that the person with whom she spoke was a short woman, with blonde hair, well dressed, and with jewelry, among which a gold watch with an image of a cartoon stood out.
The criminal would have explained to her victim that she was accompanied by an adult and some minors. One of these, her son, was sick and needed to be urgently taken to a hospital because he feared it was a serious sequel to Covid-19.
“She told me that she was very sorry, but that she had to ask me for money because her husband had not deposited it. I asked her where she was from and she told me ‘from Carmen’, I asked her ‘from Ciudad del Carmen?’ and she told me no, from a ‘little town near here’, but I didn’t take it too seriously”.
After the brief talk, the woman decided to give this person money, but when she turned her body to her right to reach her bag, she felt something sharp in her ribs and then the woman told her in a loud voice that she wanted a thousand pesos.

When she arrived at the roundabout “Royal Montecristo” she found unit 6030 of the SSP and explained to an officer what had happened to her, he notified the “surveillance” and recommended that the woman goes to the State Attorney General’s Office to file a complaint. a complaint.
