There were barely 40 minutes to the end of the week in a kindergarten in La Plata, when an armed man unleashed a madness.
It happened in establishment No. 958, located at 155 and 44, where scenes of deep despair were experienced.
Apparently, according to the complaint filed by a psychologist from that educational establishment, the man burst in with threats to the teaching staff and intentions to take a girl, of whom, although it was not her father, he held legal guardianship, which would have lost by court decision.
The presentation for the violent incident was filed at the Melchor Romero police station and led to the initiation of a judicial investigation by the criminal prosecutor in charge of La Plata, Martín Almirón.
Some parents who witnessed the scene and school workers, teachers and non-teachers, were stunned by what happened and demanded a quick intervention in the case.
According to what was narrated in the section and, to what witnesses of the event told this newspaper, the Ministry of Children and Adolescents of the Municipality of our city has already intervened in the case, which took charge of the minor until determine the steps to follow.
The protective attitude towards the little girl, who was able to remain inside the garden despite the intruder’s intentions to the contrary, so confused him that he threatened to “blow everything up”.
“I have nothing to lose, they took my daughter away from me,” he would have said loudly.
He also loudly demanded that they tell him to his face who had denounced him, that he knew it was someone from the institution.
“He told us that he was going to kill us all, that he had nothing to lose, because they had removed his guardianship,” they mentioned in the El Retiro neighborhood entity.
Apparently, in the next few hours a raid would be carried out on a neighboring piece of land, where the suspect would settle, with the intention of seeing if they can locate the weapon.
It was learned that the defendant had already been imposed a perimeter restriction order to approach the teachers, assistants and the entire educational community in general, “although that is not a guarantee of anything,” they expressed with concern in the garden.
Even the presence of a patrolman is not enough to find some calm, since this measure “will last, with luck, only a couple of days,” they pointed out.
The defendant, as if that were not enough, commented that he had spoken with some barrabravas from Gymnastics and that on Monday -for today- they were going to hear from him.
For this reason, in a statement, there are several who do not want to set foot in the initial education center for fear of reprisals.
“We put on record that we did not attend the Kindergarten No. 958, located at Calle 155 and 44, on March 6, due to the conflict situation exposed, considering that the protection measures for the physical integrity of children are not given, girls, teaching staff, directors and assistants”, they indicated.
In the entire neighborhood, needless to say, there is fear, since the indicated man is not the first time he has caused excesses.
