“Open up,” the raiders shout. “Open it!” A gun is pointed at the woman who has to open the ATM. An employee who wants to help the woman is threatened with the firearm and pushed away. “Open it up!” A colleague made the penetrating images of the armed robbery of Wednesday afternoon at the Jumbo supermarket on the Alkmaar Winkelwaard.
The robbery by the two young men was filmed from the beginning to the end – for almost a minute – by an employee of the Jumbo at the Winkelwaard.

The two perpetrators come into the picture when a Jumbo employee is forced to open an ATM at the entrance of the store. She bends over to open the lock. The two men scream behind her. Both wear a black full-face helmet. Both also have a black coat. One of them, wearing jeans and white sneakers, has a gun with her and points it at the employee. “Open it,” he yells, and the door also unlocks. “Back up,” the robber yells with a gun at a male employee. He is threatened with the gun and gets a big push.
Striking: the few customers in the supermarket remain cool under the screams of the men with the gun. They take a few steps back on command, but continue to follow developments closely. They see that one of the perpetrators takes a shopping bag from Albert Heijn to collect the loot. Then the images become more unclear. The shouting continues. The creator of the video tries to contact the two robbers again from another place. People are screaming for “tempo”. “Police” are called somewhere, but it is unclear where that sound comes from. After almost a minute, an alarm goes off and the movie is over. The men are gone. Left on a scooter.
Almost immediately after the robbery, a civil network message was sent out asking for two tinted men to look out. They drove away at high speed on a black Gilera scooter with partly blue hoods without a license plate.
The two men have not yet been found. It is still unclear what they have captured.
