Last week, in the vicinity of 118 and 89, an area bordering between Barrio Jardín and Villa Montoro located in the town of Villa Elvira, an act of gender violence shocked the neighborhood. In a house on that block, a 26-year-old young man held his 28-year-old partner for one night, early in the morning and the following morning, while pointing a gun at her.
Fortunately, the woman managed to escape from this pressing situation and went to the Villa Ponsati police station to file the corresponding complaint. In the midst of his shock, the victim was able to report what happened and shortly after the assailant ended up behind bars.
In the last hours and about 700 meters from that event, another similar one took place. According to a 41-year-old woman, her 31-year-old boyfriend (of Paraguayan nationality) threatened her with death with a dagger and locked her inside his home for much of the night.
As the spokesmen revealed, a call to 911 alerted the authorities of what happened. A police mobile addressed 7 and 90, where the complainant was, who explained to the uniformed officers that her partner, knife in hand, had forced her to stay with him in the house they share.
Then, the troops went to the address indicated by the victim, located at 91 between 1 and 2. There they found the defendant asleep and “under the state of drug use,” the spokesmen said. In addition, under his pillow they found the knife, with a 35-centimeter blade.
The subject was apprehended, taken to the police station, and notified of a 200-meter approach restriction.
IN BERISSO, HITS AND LOCKING
On the other hand, a 19-year-old girl experienced moments of extreme tension when a 26-year-old subject hit her and then locked her in the bathroom after noticing that she had notified the police. According to official sources, the episode of gender violence began with a call for help to 911.
The victim made a quick report and requested the presence of the uniformed men, who arrived minutes later at the farm located at 29 between 162 and 162 North, Berisso.
In that sense, the spokesmen pointed out that “personnel from the Patrol Command responded to the call and upon entering the place they found a man who had a girl trapped in the bathroom.”
Relieved, the woman assured that the subject had entered the house without prior notice and by force and that he had also beaten her.
The accused was arrested for “violation of the home, damages, unlawful deprivation of liberty, threats and injuries in the context of gender violence.”
