The thieves cornered him and beat him in the presence of his children. Hurt and intimidated, the subjects took his cell phone and forced him to give them the keys to access the bank accounts: “They transferred what they could.”

Regardless of the fact that they had managed to make the money transfers and had stripped him of his cell phone, wedding ring and a watch, the criminals tried to attack his children.

“The situation got a little complicated when one of them went to grab my daughter. That’s when I hit him hard. Curiously, that’s when the situation started to calm down, but they didn’t behave very well,” he said on the television news. .

Actress Mónica Fonseca, Raba’s wife, described what happened as “terrible”: “A normal walk to the mountains turns into this crappy situation. 5 young people against a father, an 11-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl.”
