Estoi robbery

Two masked armed men robbed the newly-opened Estoi Palace boutique hotel on April 25 before making their escape in a stolen car.

According to a GNR spokesman, the two men demanded money from the staff and threatened them with a gun and a knife at around 11.30pm before escaping in a client’s car.

A spokesman told the Algarve Resident: “The case is now being investigated by the PJ police because a fire arm was involved.
