Before leaving the shop the suspects asked for the victim’s phone number, and then later they sent the victim a message on Telegram, saying that they wanted to buy 11 red iPhones and a Huawie GT2 watch from him. They asked the victim to deliver the phones to them at the HIMAWARI hotel.
When the victim arrived, the suspect, DANIEL ZACCANTI, was waiting in front of the hotel and he told the phone seller that his girlfriend needed to look at the phones in the hotel.

The victim gave those phones to the suspect, who then walked very fast and jumped into the Lexus car driven by the British male suspect and they drove away in the car. POST NEWS
