At Barra Shopping, the bandits arrived while the shopping center was still in operation. They tried to rob an electronics store, and there was a rush.

Criminals fled without taking anything.

Both cases are being investigated by the Civil Police. Barra Shopping and Fashion Mall advisors said they are available to the authorities to collaborate with the investigations.
