Judicial agents detained two men Tuesday and said they were street bandits who were terrorizing Tirrases de Curridabat
The Judicial Investigating Organization said that the two men were 26 and 33 years of age. They are suspected of at least four cases of robbery.
The bandits being sought by agents used to hide themselves in dark areas and wait until a homeowner approached the entry to his dwelling. They would approach and ask for money as if they were panhandlers.
If the homeowner declined to give them money, they would pull a knife and take what they could, said agents.
Agents said they were seeking more victims.
