Rome, jewelers, tobacconists and bars: in the city it is a record of robberies
Rome, selfie on the Corso Francia bridge: the crazy fashion that nobody stops
On the Via Cassia the Flying Team Hawks, who were carrying out checks for a series of Rolex robberies carried out in the area, intercepted a scooter carrying two men suspected of being the perpetrators. At the alt, the scooter escaped at high speed and a chase was born. Several police crews came to the area to stop it. At Corso Francia, an agent stepped out of the car and ordered a second alt, but the scooter attempted to hit it. At that point a shot was fired in the air for intimidating purposes.
The bike made a quick turnaround and soon crashed into a steering wheel, thus ending the race. Two policemen who were on board were slightly injured and taken to the hospital. The robbers of Rolex thieves arrested in Rome by the police at the end of a chase during which a police gunshot was fired in the air for intimidating purposes would have been carried out this morning. The victims of the robberies have been identified. According to police sources, the shots were scored with the "mirror technique" in via Ferrari, in the Prati district, and on Lungotevere Flaminio. Bruno Turco, 37, and Francesco Ragnolo, 38, end up in handcuffs.
And the fear in those moments was so much in Corso Francia, the usually busy street, where there are several shops and where numerous buildings overlook. Many people gathered on the sidewalks asking for information. «Never seen such a thing. I'm upset, ”said a girl who was driving. "It was terrible – a woman said – I heard the shot two meters away from me". For some it is "a tragedy touched because it is a road where families with children and the elderly usually walk". The story raised the inevitable political fuss.

"Rome is in chaos – the attack of the leader of the League, Matteo Salvini – by now all the colors are happening. Honor to the police, while unfortunately the others sleep ». "It was until yesterday the chief of the Ministry of the Interior. The Romans, frightened, thank "the reply of the regional secretary of the PD, Bruno Astorre.
"Is the mayor Ray still convinced that this city has not become a far west? – the rhetorical question of Stefano Pedica, of the Pd -. After all that has happened in the last few weeks it is clear that there is a security problem and that we need to increase the presence of the police in the capital ».
While Mariastella Gelmini, leader of the Forza Italia in the Chamber, said: "Police cars whizzing through the downtown districts, shootings, brawls, burned out shops and premises, open-air shop, dirt, neglect, widespread crime and, unfortunately, even dead. Rome has become an unlivable city. It is turning more and more into an Italic Bronx ».

Meanwhile, investigations continue to trace the authors of the fires that destroyed two rooms in Centocelle in recent days. The cameras' recordings of the area and the testimonials are being examined by the investigators. In the next few hours the carabinieri will send an informative report to the Public Prosecutor's Office on the stake which destroyed the "Baraka Bistrot" two nights ago. At the moment no hypothesis is excluded: from crime to the gesture of a madman. To be established even if the same hand is behind the two episodes. The anti-fascist library "Pecora elettrico", a local historian, is located in a more isolated part of the neighborhood, while the "Baraka Bistrot" in the nightlife area and the owners took it over in September.Last update: 11 November, 00:24 © REPRODUCTION RESERVED
