Man picked up from Playa del Carmen streets for attempted murder

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Playa del Carmen police have arrested a man wanted in relation to the attempted murder of a woman. The man, identified by the Attorney General’s Office as Isaias C, was arrested for the event that took place a year ago.

The Attorney General says Isaias C was detained “for his probable participation in the crime of attempted femicide, to the detriment of a victim of reserved identity.”

The agency reported that their investigation established “that the events occurred on December 21, 2020, in a house in this municipality where the aggressor, after an argument, probably submitted and, with the use of a knife, caused injuries to the victim, that put her life at risk.”

“Prosecutors specializing in dealing with crimes against Women and for Gender Reasons initiated the investigation into which they incorporated evidence and requested an arrest warrant against the accused.”

Isaias C was picked up from a street in Playa del Carmen where he was handcuffed and transferred to the Social Reintegration Center of Solidaridad.
