He involved his 12-year-old son in at least six robberies, all committed on the same day between five in the morning and in the afternoon.
According to what is reported in the columns of “Il Mattino” the man, a 45-year-old from Afragola would have forced his 12-year-old son to commit robberies. The boy’s story during an interview with the carabinieri is terrible: “I don’t want to be the victim. My father is a beast, he beats me and my mother. If he refuses to do the robberies, he hits me, punches me, gets upset. He threatens me with death with his shotgun. And I, to prevent him from hurting my mother and me, I am forced to follow him in his madness which becomes bestial when he is in a crisis of assistance. He forces me not to go to school. He tells me: I need you for robberies “.
The investigations conducted
The investigations conducted by the carabinieri ensured that the boy’s responsibility in at least six robberies was ascertained, always under threat from his father who used to beat him with a baseball bat. Having ascertained the responsibilities, the carabinieri of the Cesoria company and of the Crispano station immediately executed an application order of the precautionary custody in prison against the 45-year-old father for the crimes of aggravated robbery, possession and illegal carrying of weapons in a public place, receiving stolen goods and abuse in the family.
The investigations began thanks to reports brought forward by the victims of the various robberies also helped by public and private video surveillance systems. For the 12-year-old, now, there is the possibility of changing his life away from his father.
