In the video, 52 year old Pascual Cusilayme Yanqui is seen entering the premises on Aramburú Avenue with a suitcase containing the money with which he intended to close the property purchase transaction with Félix Rómulo Gonzáles Victorio.

Shortly after, at approximately 3pm, two vehicles carrying 3 armed criminals wearing balaclavas over their heads and surgical latex gloves on their hands pulled up next to the notary, one of them went straight for the security guard to disarm him and prevent him from interfering with the accomplices who meantimely entered the premises.

A robber stormed the room where the transaction was being closed and threatened the parties with a gun. Unwilling to surrender such large amount of cash to the criminal, Pascual Cusilayme resisted the handover and was assisted by Félix Gonzáles, whom the robber fatally shot. Pascual Cusilayme was himself shot in the leg, however his wound was not fatal.

  1. A lot of good that lame security guard did! Lol. Especially when the robbers got out of the car in the beginning. He had to be in on it! Horrible actor too! Love how he returned to his little post at the end. Lol, gotta get his hours in!

  2. The guard showed no resistance whatsoever…Two men ran blindly in while the other went to the guard. A guard is the biggest threat in a situation like this and you don’t send one man on him, who removes the guards’ gun so clumsy.
    So yeah he was either part of the crew or he’s just a moron, most likely both.

  3. Why do people refuse to let go of the money in those situations? If it were me, I’d hand the money over straight away AND write them a cheque too.
