Casablanca – The Casablanca police arrested, three out of five suspects on Sunday who had robbed the passengers of a bus in Casablanca’s Enouassar neighborhood last Saturday.
Armed with knives and swords, the five suspects allegedly stopped a bus in Casablanca’s Enouassar neighborhood and robbed all the passengers.
Out of the five suspects, three were arrested on Sunday, whereas the two others are still on the run.
Using the same weapons, a gang of masked hooligans broke into Benjelloun Stadium in Casablanca, where the Wydad soccer team was having a training session last week.
The suspects assaulted and robbed Wydad’s members and players and vandalized their cars before leaving the stadium.
Some of the players, suffering different degrees of injury, were taken to a hospital to receive treatment.
Armed robbery, especially with the use of knives and swords, has become a recurrent phenomenon in Casablanca. Many residents of the economic capital have complained against insecurity and lack of police presence in the city.
