The players of the 2022–23 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship participants, Brasília Vôlei, had a traumatic experience on Monday.
The Brasília players had a scare this Monday, in the city of Taguatinga. While preparing to have lunch at a restaurant, they were surprised by two men, who entered the establishment and announced an armed robbery. In the video recorded by the security cameras inside the restaurant, it’s possible to see the entire traumatic scene. “Everyone stop!“ declared one of the robbers, pointing the gun at a customer, who was sitting near the entrance. The 10 players of the Superliga 1XBET Feminina club got a scare, practically, in front of their training place, where they usually have their meals, during which some of them leave their belongings at the table while they go to the buffet.
In a note, the police of the state of Distrito Federal (Federal District) reported that a third man waited outside in the car of the Nissan Versa brand for the duo to act. The robbers took three cell phones from the players and some other belongings. With no reaction from the victims, they left, and the police carried out the searches. Brasília issued a note in which they informed that the players didn’t suffer physical aggression and that, “despite the material losses, they are all fine“.
