The video of this new fact of insecurity in Bogotá Councilor Emel Rojas published it on Twitter this Monday afternoon, who identified the victim as José Reinel Perdomo, 31 years old.
Rojas assured that the three criminals who appear in the video snatched Perdomo’s cell phone, and in the images it is observed that while two of them searched his pockets, the other stabbed him several times in the back.
The young man tries to oppose the robbery and he struggles with thieves, and that’s when a man in a white shirt stabs him in the chest. Perdomo falls to the ground badly injured and the man with the knife kicks him several times in the face, and then they flee the place.
The recording shows that the events occurred around 4:30 in the morning, and CityTv confirmed what the victim was arriving at his parents’ house when he decided to answer a call before entering.

“Could it be that the government is coming to help us?” Added the woman.
