Meanwhile, the suspicious woman approaches. A third man tries to break up the argument, but the suspect starts stabbing the victim. The woman holds the boy as he is stabbed. He dies in the middle of the avenue.
Moments later, the suspects leave the scene. A policeman arrested the suspect a few meters from the incident. The woman was arrested shortly after by the Military Police.
The two were taken to the Castelo Police Station, from where they will be taken to the prison.
The mother of the young woman involved still cannot understand what happened. “Since I was 10 years old, she’s given me a lot of trouble. I suffer a lot with her. I just ask that God takes care of it and that she stays in jail. Because if she gets out, it’s going to be worse.”
