“They went out into the streets to damage the doors and windows of the Banco Popular ATM, broke glass in the José Paolo store and stole merchandise. They also tried to rob a warehouse but they could not enter,” said the police chief.

The chief also confirmed that his officers were attacked with firearms and stones.
