Fermin Matura, a 27-year-old technician, reported to police that on Saturday, June 9, at about 3:00 a.m., he was driving his vehicle in the company of two females. When he reached a pedestrian crossing by BTL Park on Newtown Barracks, one of the females requested a sudden stop and that’s when two men jumped into his vehicle. According to Matura, one of the men pulled out a firearm, cranked it and pointed it at him and ordered him to drive. Matura said he complied and drove the vehicle to Coney Drive where he was ordered to stop. He told police that he jumped out of the vehicle leaving behind his two assailants and the females inside.
