Yesterday night (29), hundreds of Christmas cyclists gathered for a demonstration against insecurity at meeting points of the sport’s practitioners. The group toured the Rota do Sol, between Ponta Negra and Pium, seeking to draw the attention of the authorities to the insecurity in the area. In the demonstration, however, the bad guys made new victims.
Around 7 pm, when the group left Frasqueirão to Pium fair, the atmosphere was calm, with the protesters reporting to the press about the problems that had occurred previously and also asking for security measures in the area. The climate was calm until the return journey, when the cyclists were again surprised by the action of criminals.
In the vicinity of the Barreira do Inferno, the cyclists began to regroup the participants before ending their return to Natal. However, some participants of the movement preferred to follow the course back in smaller groups. A few meters ahead, they were assaulted.
According to a report by cyclist Hiram Lima, a cyclist returned running towards the platoon claiming that he had been surrendered and that they had stolen his bicycle. “He said they were two thugs who were inside the woods and were armed. We were scared when he returned running and the group remained tense until Ponta Negra,” he explained.
Despite the report of a robbery, five more people were robbed yesterday. Through social networks, cyclist Robson Costa confirmed that he and four other friends were approached by four criminals and had bicycles, cell phones and alliances taken by the criminals who, he said, were armed with revolvers and machetes.
“Yesterday there was a protest of the cyclists precisely because of the constant assaults there, and we imagined that because we had enough movement yesterday, we would not be approached by bandits, but they made us walk for a long time in the woods, always threatening us, With the side of the machete on the back of one of us, “said the cyclist.
The Zona Sul Police Station said that the victims lodged a complaint, but that there was no information on the whereabouts of the criminals.
