After that, the criminal’s accomplices reduced the man and inserted a stick in his mouth with a hook at the end to tear off his tongue. In addition, he was beaten, causing several injuries to his body.

The victim was able to get home and notify his family, who transferred him to Dos de Mayo hospital, where he was hospitalized for four days. He is still under observation, since the beating would have left him sequelae.
