Casablanca- On Monday, February 24, an armed gang attacked an armored bank truck in Tangier, robbing MAD 7.5 million from it. A video of the robbery has recently gone viral on the web.
After shooting two guards, four suspects flew away in a fast car after they had stolen MAD 7.5 million from a bank truck in Tangier.
A video camera inside the bank captured the robbery that took place outside.
The video shows the suspects attacking the two bank guards and robbing the money truck in broad daylight. A guard inside the bank was unable to intervene because the suspects were armed.
Some of the people who were inside the bank started calling the police as soon as they saw the suspects attacking the guards and robbing the truck.
The suspects seemingly took 2 minutes to finish the operation, and no one dared to intervene. One of the injured guards can be seen in the video lying injured on the ground.
Towards the end of the video, one of the guards climbed into the truck and chased the suspects who fled the scene in another car, leaving behind the other injured guard on the ground.
The suspects are still on the run and the police in Tangier are doubling their efforts to apprehend them.
