The criminals got out of the truck and started running. According to information from Televisa News, after committing the assault, at least six men wearing sweatshirts climbed into a gray truck and escape from the scene.
At that time, in the hotel zone of Puerto Vallarta, another assault on a jewelry store was committed. The subjects who perpetrated the second robbery fled in a wine-colored truck before colliding with another vehicle where the suspects fled on foot, one being captured by police.
The Directorate of Public Safety reported that in both robberies the alleged perpetrators acted with the same ‘modus operandi’: they entered with short weapons, broke glass cases and extracted watches and jewelry.
