Cancun, Q.R. — Two men posing as passengers on a public Cancun combi are being sought by police for robbery. On Wednesday, two men aboard a public transport van robbed other passengers before escaping.
Those on board the unit said the two men were armed and threatened passengers with guns as the van traveled along Niños Héroes Avenue. Everyone inside the van was stripped of their personal belongings before the pair took off.
Witnesses told police that the two men jumped out of the van and were immediately met by a car. They jumped into the waiting car, which they pointed out was driven by a woman, and proceeded to drive away. The driver of the public combi followed the car, taking a photo of its license plate.
In the back seat of the car was another man. Quintana Roo Police officers arrived at the scene and deployed a search operation for the assailants. Their search continues.
