Roccuzzo’s cousin Agustina Scalia was robbed by gunmen in Rosario as she travelled from her family’s supermarket to deposit cash at a local bank, according to Marca. The attackers made off with £18,000 ($22,500) in Argentine pesos. The thieves also fired at least one gunshot and broke one of the windows in the car during the attack.


Roccuzzo has shared some pictures from her family of the incident on social media.

“Conscious of the times we live in, where every day there are so many injustices, I am grateful that it was just one more scare. Thank you for so much love these days,” read the caption alongside the images by Mauricio Scaglia.

Rocuzzo replied with her own message: “I love you very much brothers.”

A colleague who worked at the family’s supermarket spoke to the media about the terrifying ordeal.

“We were going from the supermarket to the bank to deposit the money,” said the worker. “There was a car for sure, because I saw them get into one. At the moment when everything started, all I heard were gunshots. When we got out we saw the bullet hole.”

Head of radio command Diego Santamaria also confirmed some details of the attack.

“The shot was apparently fired when the car tried to get away,” he said. “They were leaving the supermarket and going to a nearby bank. At 5pm, they were approached by a white car, the glass was broken and the bags with the large sum of money were taken.”
