Four teens held in robbery and murder

Judicial agents have detained four teens in a robbery and murder that took place Friday.

Agents detained the youngsters in four simultaneous early morning raids in Corina Rodríguez, La Guapil and Los Pinos sections of Alajuelita.

They are accused in the death of a man with the last name of  Vásquez who was walking to his home late Friday in Aurora de Alajuelita.

Agents said that the man was shot once in the head, once in the cheek and once in the neck when he resisted. The robbers had a .38 caliber pistol. The robbers stole the man’s cell telephone.

In another juvenile case Wednesday, mounted Fuerza Pública officers on patrol at Parque de la Paz captured two youngsters who dropped a part of a sparkplug from a pedestrian bridge and shattered the windshield of a passing car.

Police said the pair were 15 and 16. The driver was able to stop his vehicle without causing any damage, they added.
