Three pharmacies robbed almost simultaneously in Oaxaca

Three pharmacies were robbed at gunpoint in the city of Oaxaca on Sunday afternoon almost simultaneously, confirmed the State Agency of Investigation within the Attorney General’s Office.

A security camera captured the moments when two armed people entered the branch located in Santa Rosa and threatened the staff who forced them to lie on the ground with their hands behind them.

In the video of 57 seconds, it is seen that one of the alleged assailants has a pistol, forces one of the employees to open a cabinet from which they extract controlled merchandise and then prompt them to remain kneeling. Afterwards, the assailants leave, leaving the workers on the floor.

In less than a minute, the alleged criminals, who only wore caps to conceal their identity, achieved their goal and fled the scene. In none of the three assaults were injured people reported.
