  • Introduction to Video Content
  • In a shocking incident of gunpoint robbery, a victim speaks out about his experience. This exclusive story, only on two, highlights the warning issued by police and numerous victims who have fallen prey to a bold robbery crew. The suspects, seen in a video, have been identified by the police as responsible for multiple armed robberies and carjackings. One family, who were targeted by this group, bravely shares their ordeal with CBS 2. The incident was captured on camera, showing three masked men brandishing guns and swiftly robbing the victims. The first perpetrator approached the truck while the others held out their guns. Victor Galena, whose son translated his account, recounts the traumatic event. Galena, on his way to work early in the morning, had the unfortunate task of witnessing his hard-earned money for construction tools being snatched away. With the alarming speed of the robbery, all the money and a day's worth of work vanished instantly. Despite this devastating loss, Galena stood near the door, determined to protect what was left of his family's security. He was more concerned about the possibility of the robbers entering their house and tried his best to safeguard the doorways, unwilling to come downstairs. Inside the house, his wife, five kids, sister, and nephews were sound asleep, oblivious to the danger lurking outside. Galena maintained a brave stance, telling the intruders that he would fight back if they dared to force their way in. His son sees him as a hero, recognizing his unarmed stand against the armed robbers. However, Galena shrugs off the hero label, explaining that he simply acted on instinct to protect his loved ones.
