Three people aboard a fast launch rammed a 42 foot motor boat with two people on board. They boarded the boat and robbed the owner and his friend, then made them put on lifejackets before throwing them overboard and stealing the boat, disappearing into the dusk.
The two victims, who were saved after a while, suffered mild hypothermia.
The Police and Carabinieri continue their investigations.
