At least four armed men invaded and robbed a coffee shop on Wednesday afternoon (15), on Rua Barão de Tatuí, in the Santa Cecília neighborhood, central region of São Paulo.
According to witnesses, the suspects wore masks to avoid being identified. They fled before police arrived at the scene.
The Military Police reported that they were called to respond to the incident, but the suspects had already fled towards the Higienópolis neighborhood.
Witnesses reported that at least 40 cell phones were stolen. In addition, the criminals would also have taken money from customers and the establishment. The information was confirmed by the PM.
A CNN was at the address of the incident and heard reports that the suspects acted silently and professionally. A doorman who works on the street explained the dynamics of the crime. He asked not to be identified because he fears reprisals.
According to the witness, a car was parked in front of the establishment, while the suspects “trawled” inside. The doorman said he only realized he had witnessed a crime after customers left the establishment.
The cafe was closed and no one responsible for the location was identified. The police station that will investigate the case will be the 77th Police District.
The Public Security Secretariat was contacted to comment on the case and a position will be added as soon as it is received by the report.
