Entrepreneur Saturnino De Cecco, vice president of the De Cecco pasta company, was robbed at his villa in Abruzzo. His wife and 5-year-old daughter were returning home last night around 9 p.m. when they were taken hostage at the gate of the villa by four armed bandits with masked faces. The thugs, once inside the house, locked the wife and child in the kitchen, guarded by two of the robbers. The businessman, who was already in the villa in the hills of Montesilvano, was forced by two other bandits to open the safe.
It was a moment of sheer terror. The gang snatched up a hefty loot made up of watches and other valuables, then fled in a stolen Audi driven by a fifth accomplice who had remained outside waiting for them. Everything took place in a matter of minutes, without using violence on the hostages.
The robbery at the home of Saturnino De Cecco, known to everyone as Nino, is being investigated by carabinieri from the Montesilvano company. Initial findings suggest that it was a gang of people from the East. The heist was prepared by studying the habits of the family. The attacked villa is isolated.
