Two women from Holland visiting Miami for spring break were robbed at gunpoint this week, questioning their willingness to ever return to the city, the Miami Police Department said.
The robbery took place right before 5 a.m. on Monday outside a condo building at 555 Northeast 15th Street in Miami. According to one of the victims, Sughaxi Casteallucceo, she and her friend went out clubbing with a man they had met on a previous trip to Miami.
On their way back to the hotel, Casteaullucceo fell asleep in the car during the ride but woke up when a gun was pointing at her face.
"He was supposed to take us back to the hotel. So I fell asleep in the car, but when I woke up, I saw a guy with a gun in my face," Casteallucceo said. "He knew my name, so that was very weird."
The robber knew her name and specifically asked for her Rolex. The thief also stole her purse, her money, and her ID.
"He took a Rolex, which was very sentimental for me because I got it with the birth of my child, my last one," Casteallucceo said. "It has the name of my child and their day of birth."
"It was the most terrible moment of my life," said Casteallucceo. "I am a mother of four children and I just said take what you want."
Surveillance footage of the incident shows a black BMW being used as the getaway car after the robbery. The weapon used is believed to have been a large rifle.
Authorities are investigating to see whether the two women were set up.
"I don't know if I'll come back to Miami," Casteallucceo added. "It's a shame. You come to Miami to have fun and go on vacation, and you almost get killed."
