Two Tourists from U.S. assaulted after withdrawing funds from ATM in Mexico City, one dead, one injured

Colonia Álamos located in Alcaldía Benito Juárez en Ciudad de México (MACHINE TRANSLATED) Yesterday afternoon (05-16-17), two tourists of American nationality were assaulted and seriously injured on a bridge over the Tlalpan road in the Benito Juárez delegation.

According to reports from the Public Security Ministry, the foreigners were assaulted after withdrawing money at an ATM in the Alamos colony (Colonia Álamos) and later wanted to cross the avenue on the low bridge at La Coruna street, where the criminals were.


One of the tourists received a bullet in the back so he was transferred to receive medical attention and the other received the impact on the head, so he died on the spot.

According to early police and witness accounts, there were four criminals, of whom two were allegedly following tourists after seeing them withdraw cash. The tourists resisted, even managed to beat one of the criminals, so his accomplice found himself in need of shooting them to help him.

Of the street vendors who were close to the area, none of them helped until they saw them badly injured and asked for emergency services.

Because tourists did not speak Spanish, their identity, nationality and age are unknown and all they knew was that they spoke in English.

The site was later visited by experts from the capital’s procuratorate to give way to the investigation leading to the arrest of those allegedly responsible. READ FULL ARTICLE
