Bandits shoot two in legs in separate Saturday crimes

A man in Calle Blancos suffered a bullet wound to the leg when he came to the aid of his wife who was being robbed in the family’s parking area. The location is north of San José Centro.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said that this happened about 8:30 p.m. Saturday after the woman returned home and opened the gates to the parking area. Two men on a motorcycle intruded and hit her on the head. The husband witnesses the events from inside the house and came out. That is when he was shot in the right leg.

A 25-yearr-old man waiting for a bus a half hour later in Curridabat also suffered a bullet wound to the leg when bandits pulled up in a vehicle and pulled a gun on him and another would-be bus passenger. The man threw his cell phone at the bandits, agents said.
