Rock in Rio regulars registered complaints of robberies and thefts this Friday (2) in the City of Rock on the first night of Rock In Rio.

The g1 talked to two young women who were in the Special Criminal Court and gave similar reports about the approach: a large group passes close to the victim and a woman who is part of it picks up the phone. One of the victims said that she managed to grab the thief’s arm, but she had already passed the phone on. According to the victim, the assailant had an accent from another South American country.

“This scares us. Man, I’m so frustrated. I bought him the Sepultura show [o companheiro] as a wedding gift”, said a tourist from Minas Gerais who declined to be identified.

At the post where it is possible to make Occurrence Records online, 17 more people made similar reports only when the reporting team was on site.

Journalist Letícia Rodrigues says that she was working making images of the public when she was also targeted by the same group, close to the stage.

“I saw that they started to press us against the crowd. All of a sudden the place started to get very crowded. Then some friends who were with us made a siege like this and I felt someone with their hand on my bag, but I thought that could be one of the friends. When I realized my purse was open and without my cell phone”, he said.

“The event is wonderful. The problem is this violence that makes people smile. You spend a hell of a lot of money, an expensive show, legal structure… unfortunately there was this loss. another victim.

“And I heard here waiting for several people talking about the same place (of the theft). Probably tomorrow they will be in the same place acting. I hope the police find out to inhibit”, added another fan who was recording.

An agent who was in the court said that thefts are, by far, the main police occurrence attended at the event. He did not, however, have a balance of events from the first night.
