Two military-aged Egyptian illegals were arrested Thursday in Italy for robbing the son of anti-illegal-migrant Lega leader and Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini. The migrants, described by a judge as “dangerous repeat offenders,” stole Federico’s phone and cash after threatening him with a broken bottle in Milan on December 23, in Milan’s Via Jacopo Palma.
The illegals approached Federico with the excuse of needing a cigarette, then threatened him with shards of a bottle – forcing him to hand over his cell phone and about 200 euros, which he had in his wallet. Federico attempted to chase the two illegals but had no success finding them.
After robbing Federico of his mobile phone and cash, the two illegals, 21 and 26, entered a hairdressing salon and hid the stolen mobile phone under a sofa. The following day they returned to the shop to retrieve the phone, but the salon owner recognized them. The owner also sensed that the phone found could be the same one that the police had searched for the evening before. So the man decided to photograph the pair, then alerted the police.
The victim, Federico, recognized the younger man as the one who took the phone while the other man allegedly acted as a lookout, police said. Police made the arrests after viewing CCTV footage of the incident. The two were taken to prison on robbery charges.
I thank the police forces which in this, as in many other cases, arrested the offenders,” said Matteo Salvini.
“I hope, “adds Salvini, that now the two criminals do not find a judge who, as too often happens, will set them free within a few days.”
Salvini slammed the rising crime in Milan and throughout Italy. Salvini is one of the few Western leaders who has demanded that the borders be closed to illegal migrants. He has faced legal trials (see here, here, here, here, here) for stopping hordes of migrants illegally landing in Italy and has railed against rising migrant crime rates and teen migrant gangs.
