The three attackers of the shopkeeper who, in Rome, prevented them from entering his business because without a mask were arrested. The carabinieri of the Roma Porta Portese station carried out an order for the application of a precautionary measure in prison against 3 people – a 44-year-old Roman, a woman originally from the province of Avellino, in the capital with no fixed abode, 30 years old and a 30-year-old Afghan citizen, all with precedents – accused, for various reasons, of the crimes of aggravated robbery in competition, aggravated personal injury in competition and illegal carrying of weapons. A fourth subject, their accomplice, is actively sought. On June 23, a group of people entered, without wearing the masks required by the anti Covid-19 legislation, into an electronics store in the Gianicolense ring road, owned by a 33-year-old Chinese citizen.
The owner, at that moment in the company of his wife and children aged 3 and 7, invited customers to wear masks, an instance immediately rejected by the group and a vehement discussion was born, seasoned with insults and threats against the owner. After a few minutes, the group left the shop without creating further problems, but at the end of the year, when the shopkeeper with his family went to retrieve his car in piazzale Flavio Biondo, he was faced again, first by a woman, backed by the other members of the group, willing to take revenge for the alleged wrong suffered previously in the shop. The wife of the Chinese citizen got their children into the car to spare them from the fury of their attackers who, despite their presence, began to hit the body shop anyway. Husband was threatened with a utility knife and was forced by the pack to hand over a smartwatch and phone earphones after he was beaten, resulting in a broken nose bone with a 30-day prognosis.
