Americans should avert “express robberies,” U.S. Embassy warns
Santo Domingo.- Faced with a wave of “express robberies” in numerous intersections of the capital, the U.S. Embassy urged American citizens to be cautious to avoid becoming victims.
The embassy’s warning comes after newspaper El Dia in May reported on the “express robbery” and even provided a Web link.
“U.S. citizens should exercise extreme caution when traveling through the following intersections: John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and Maximo Gomez, John F. Kennedy and Ortega y Gasset and San Martin, Ortega y Gasset and Paraguay (entrance to Plaza de la Salud), and 27 Febrero and Churchill,” the warning says.
The U.S. Embassy reminds all U.S. citizens to lock the vehicle’s doors and windows to avoid being targeted by criminals, and not flaunt wealth. It adds that the thugs turn violent if there’s resistance, for which it recommends that in case of a holdup, no one should resist.
