Daytime bandits shoot woman on city street

Two bandits on a bicycle held up a 23-year-old woman in broad daylight Tuesday afternoon, took her purse and cell telephone and then shot her.

The woman survived and was last reported being treated in Hospital San Juan de Dios. The Judicial Investigating Organization identified her by the last name of Guevara.

Agents reported that she is employed in the area, which contains the Iglesia Don Bosco, the Funeraría del Recuerdo and even the country’s tax collecting department, the Direction General de Tributación. The area is south of Paseo Colón and east of Sabana Este.

The judicial police stressed that the bandits fired even though the woman had surrendered her belongings.
