A Shocking Video Reveals Robbery In Brazil
According to a video, a young man in a wheelchair was captured attempting a robbery in Brazil. According to reports, the teen with cerebral palsy was in the jewelry store for more than ten minutes, before placing a note on the counter of the store, with his feet.
The note, directed to the cashier simply instructed him to stay calm and pass over the cash. Here’s what the note says after translating to English:
”Hand over everything. Don’t raise attention.’
However, the store cashier must have interpreted the note as a joke from a criminal man in a wheelchair.
Furthermore, one of the store surveillance cameras was able to capture the criminal man in his wheelchair, before clutching a gun with his feet and pointing it towards the counter. According to the video footage, a customer walked away unbothered by the incident, while the store employee was able to confront the robber.
