The artist Leo García suffered a brutal beating: "They beat me for my sexuality"

After the pop singer Leo Garcia published a series of videos on his Instagram account claiming to have been attacked the night before “for being homosexual”, the justice denied this version, after reviewing the security cameras.

“This is not makeup. It’s how they left me in General Rodríguez, the place where I live. I’m good, I talked to a guy and gave him a gay vibe. When I threw a gay vibe on them, that’s how they responded, ”he said.

The Justice of General Rodríguez initiated an ex officio investigation into the musician’s publications. They visited his apartment three times to take his statements. García was concise when speaking, he refused on the second visit, asking that they not interfere in his private life. Finally, he went to a nearby police station and testified before the prosecutor’s office on the file.

In parallel, security camera videos showing the beating were found. The images, analyzed last night, deny García’s story according to information from high sources of the case accessed by Infobae. What is seen in the document, kept in reserve by investigators, appears to be, according to sources, “a drunken fight.”

The beating, to begin with, occurred, but not in the brewery, as a first version of events had suggested, but in a kiosk a few meters away, with tables on the sidewalk where neighbors drank beer.

There, according to witnesses, García appeared at 1:30 AM, visibly upset, dressed in a gray hoodie, asking for a liter beer, which he was denied. The young woman who attended the place did not recognize him immediately, despite his typical shaved eyebrow. Thus, the singer went to one of the tables to allegedly verbally assault two men who were drinking. He took a glass from the table, cameras show, and broke it.

Then the crossing began. Garcia was pushed by one of the two young men. He yelled back. Then he was hit.

The Buenos Aires Police managed to certify his injuries yesterday afternoon, a blow to his forehead and another to his lip, after he appeared at a police station in the area. He assured not wanting to initiate criminal action, not wanting to promote the case, but the prosecution of the case will continue with the instruction. The assailant who hit him is not seen in the video, which shows him from behind, but is assumed to be a neighbor in the area.
