“It was a horrible crime, a robbery. The two tourists are in a group, on an excursion, where they met. They went to the beach very early to see the sunrise. That was when they were approached by the two minors who asked for money. They did not give and they punched the victims,” ​​said delegate Patrícia Alemany, from the Special Office for Tourism Support (Deat).

The victims were heard at DEAT and left the police station without speaking to the press.
