Beauty parlor owner kills thief
According to Police chief Major General Manuel Castro Castillo, a beauty parlor owner, 39-year old Germania Francisca de Vasquez (Nathali) displayed heroism and bravery when she killed one of two men who robbed customers at her beauty parlor Nathalia at Calle Las Flores in Andres, Boca Chica. The deceased was identified as 31-year old Francisco Antonio Suero Montero.
Castro made the comments when answering a Hoy journalist’s question during a Police event. Previously, he had been announcing the launch of the Community Youth Police at an event at the Club Mauricio Baez in Santo Domingo.
Vasquez used her Bersa caliber 9mm handgun that she carries legally. The other man escaped on a motorcycle. The thieves had entered the beauty parlor and had just robbed her customers. As they were leaving, the beauty parlor owner fired at Suero Montero to stop him, injuring him in the back. The Central Investigations Department (Dicrim) is investigating the case.
Upon making the report, Police chief Castro said that next month 1,200 new police patrols with 398 motorcycles would be on the streets to improve security.
