A 14-year-old boy and an adult were arrested for assaulting a man who had gone to an exchange office at the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) and from whom they took a thousand dollars.
The minor under 14 years of age has three presentations before the agent of the Public Ministry, according to the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) of Mexico City.
In 2021, the minor was arrested for robbery of a private vehicle driver; in 2022, for robbery of a passerby and, in 2023, for robbery of a business.
According to SSC, a couple of patrolmen observed a vehicle impacted against a motorcycle, on the avenue Eduardo Molina and Aluminio street, in the Quinto Tramo 20 de Noviembre neighborhood, Venustiano Carranza mayor’s office.
“At the scene, they met with the driver of the car who reported that after carrying out the transaction at an AICM exchange house and going to his home, the crew members of the motorcycle, who were on the sidewalk, threatened him with an object with the characteristics of a firearm, to take away the money he was carrying,” says the police statement.
The victim decided to chase them until he collided with them and managed to stop his escape. The 36-year-old man suffered a blow when he crashed the motorcycle.
The 14-year-old boy and the adult were found with a replica of a short firearm and a thousand dollars in cash, which was recognized by the affected person as his property.
Not only does the minor have a criminal record, but when verifying the adult’s records, it was found that he has four admissions to the Mexico City Penitentiary System, in the years 2004, 2007, 2018 and 2020, for the crimes of qualified robbery, aggravated robbery qualified in a gang, qualified robbery and family violence, respectively, as well as a presentation before the agent of the Public Ministry, in the year 2021 for drug dealing.
