According to the police report, the 21-year-old was with friends in front of the house where he lives, when he saw an acquaintance being approached by police officers. He would have approached to see what happened, when the confusion began.

Inside the property, the man’s father, who is in a wheelchair, shouts for the police to stop the attacks and questions the reason for the approach. The confusion escalates until the wheelchair user pushes one of the police officers, who reacts with a kick and pushes a cabinet on top of him..

After the incident, the military police took the young man to an Emergency Care Unit (UPA) and then to the police station, where the case was registered as contempt and resistance.

According to the corporation, during the handcuffing attempt, family members interfered in the action, harassed the team and tried to prevent the arrest. “It was necessary to use physical force to ensure the safety of the team and arrest the individual.”
