The North Central Prosecutor’s Office of the capital region organized a preventive detention of a second Colombian who participated in a series of armed robberies committed early Wednesday morning and during which a person was killed in the city center of Santiago.
The state ministry accused the robbery of murder, two qualified robberies and one of intimidation of 20-year-old Colombian Jorge Carabali, who is also a cousin of his compatriot, who was also arrested by the police and involved in these crimes.
The reason will be related to Prosecutor Liliana Machuka, who must find out how these two Colombian cousins acted, who committed a series of attacks with a knife on Wednesday between Subla and San Diego streets and where they killed Chilean Elias Barros, 58, whom Karabali fatally injured white weapons.
It is worth noting that this Colombian, who is now charged with robbery with murder, lives in the country irregularly and was previously arrested for drug trafficking in 2017.
Subrefect Carlos Albornoz of the Murder Investigation Brigade stated that after the investigations had been carried out, Karabali was directly involved in four crimes: robbery with murder, two crimes of robbery with violence and one crime of robbery with intimidation.
Meanwhile, the remains of the Chilean Elias Barros were transported to the city of Linares for their respective funerals.
