    They were robbed in the course of a short time by the same thieves, a band of young North Africans who struck in the area of the Termini station in the country’s capital.

    The victims of this ugly experience were Gabriele Lanzi, a senator for the 5-Star Movement and an appeals court judge. As reported by Metro News, two members of the gang were caught and arrested, accused of aggravated theft. They are an Algerian 20 years old and another of the same nationality, aged 27. The third is still being sought.

    The thieves first struck the magistrate who was having lunch in a restaurant near the station. When the moment came to pay, the appeals court judge realized that his travel bag had disappeared. Inside were private documents and files of the proceedings for a conference in which he was supposed to participate.

    Shortly thereafter it was the turn of Lanzi. The 5-Star senator was looking for a taxi in Via Amendola, and at that moment, a young migrant approached him asking him for an address while another young man kept a lookout. But it was an excuse.

    The moment of distraction was costly for Lanzi, because another member of the gang arrived, and carried away the bags that the politician had with him. Inside were a PC, an iPad and some documents. The gang then got away.

    After the theft, the senator went to the police. The officers searched the streets near the station, after recognizing the perpetrators of the theft. They identified an Algerian and noticed that he had with him the keys with the logo of a bed and breakfast. Once inside the hotel room, they found the objects stolen from Lanzi and some of the magistrate’s documents.
