Sisters rampage shop with hammers in Turkey’s south
Two sisters have attacked a shop with hammers in the southern Turkish province of Adana amid a messy relationship between one of them and the shop owner.
According to local media reports published Oct. 30, the sisters, who were identified only as Rukiye and Esma, rampaged the cellphone shop in the Ceyhan district on July 24.
Security camera footage that was recently included in the criminal file for the trial shows the two sisters damaging a glass door, windows, displays and phones by wielding hammers as a shopkeeper was seen petrified.
Neighbors eventually entered the shop and calmed the sisters.
Local media reports said the incident happened after the shop owner had someone beat the sisters’ brother after one of them ended their love affair.
The police released the two sisters pending trial.
