A SUPERMARKET in Malaga was raided at gunpoint by two men who managed to flee with the loot. Ten minutes before closing time, and while two customers were still shopping, two men stormed the supermarket demanding money from the cashier. The men were wearing helmets and gloves and were wielding a firearm.
The only worker who was at the shop at the time recalls the terrifying robbery. She said in a police statement that one stood next to her while the other pointed a gun at her, as she was ordered to open the cash register. The assailants took the money and fled.
The robbery, which took place on Wednesday, December 11 at the Covirán supermarket on Lope de Rueda, was recorded by security cameras in the business. The images captured the moment in which an individual threatened the worker with a gun.
In addition to helmets, the men wore ski masks to avoid being identified. When they demanded the woman open the other cash register, the supermarket manager intervened and asked the men to leave. His actions deterred the assailants, who had a Spanish accent. The men escaped on a motorcycle that had been parked by the establishment and police arrived soon after.
