Default Re: Canas robbed

ARGENTINE tennis player Guillermo Canas has been robbed outside his parents home in Buenos Aires.

The incident occurred in the the early hours of Tuesday, as he left the home in the Buenos Aires suburb of La Matanza.

Two armed attackers who reportedly did not recognise Canas threatened the player and took one racket he was carrying, along with his identity documents, credit cards, some cash and a chain he wore.

They fled in Canas' convertible.

Over the weekend, the tennis player had been part of the Argentine team that beat Russia in the semi-finals of the Davis Cup in Buenos Aires.

When he was attacked, Canas was leaving his parents' home after dinner.

Glad he's ok and didn't try any Chuck Norris moves.

Old news.
It was all over the Internet last week.

However, it is not something which people should be making fun of.
Do you know how many of this robberies could end with killings?

Who is making fun of it? He did what you are supposed to do, when there is a robbery or a mugging.

It was like, a super deluxe zillion dollar Mercedes convertible, supposedly only 3 of them in the country, and they found it soon after completely torched.

what was the point to destroy the car? rob it and sell the parts or something, but burn it?

Actually a sensible thing to do if such cars were really that rare. Would be easy to trace back to the robbers if they actually decided to sell it to someone.

Maybe when they realized they'd stolen a car there are only 3 of in the whole country, they figured it would be hard to get rid of it, even in pieces. Or maybe they were afraid willy would send Maradona after them and just wanted to get rid of it toot sweet.

still, is stupid and Cañas should know better than hang around in that kind of cars in BA, if you are in La Recoleta or in Puerto Madero is ok, but going with that to LA MATANZA? is like having a neon sign saying: ROB ME, I'M AVAILABLE

Cañas must be really grateful nothing happened to him, it could have been way worse

La Matanza isn't that bad, you are making out to be like the favelas in Rio or La Boca. Robberies and muggings can happen anywhere, if they want to do it, then they will do it.

Reason nothing happened, is that he gave them what they wanted as quickly as possible.
