Convicted murderer on knife-wielding rampage causes terror in Setúbal

A man recently released from prison after serving 20 years for murder caused terror in Setúbal on Tuesday by holding up a pharmacy and then a bank. Wielding a kitchen knife with a 20cm blade, he reportedly threatened to kill staff in both locations unless they handed over the money.

Say reports, he was eventually apprehended by PSP agents who spotted him wheeling his booty away in a wheelbarrow.

The man is due before magistrates today (Wednesday), writes Correio da Manhã.
