The National Police have arrested the suspect in the murder this Saturday of a 39-year-old woman who was stabbed several times in the middle of the street in the Madrid municipality of Getafe.
Gender violence is among the main lines that the Police handle in the case, as investigation sources have indicated to Europa Press. If confirmed, she would be the 52nd victim of sexist violence in Spain.
The arrest has been confirmed, on her social networks, by the mayor of the municipality, Sara Hernández. The councilor has indicated that she hopes that Justice "clarifies this terrible event" and that "the forceful and necessary measures" are taken. In addition, the Getafe City Council has called a rally this Monday to condemn what happened at 6 p.m. in the Plaza de la Constitución.
Municipal sources have indicated that the woman was not registered in Getafe (which does not indicate that she did not live in the municipality) and that she does not have a file in the Center for Women and Equality or in Social Services.
The attack occurred on Arcas del Agua Avenue in the city, at number 15, corner with Cronos Street, around 1:40 p.m. Members of the National Police, Getafe Local Police, as well as Summa 112 paramedics traveled to the scene.
Once there, the doctors tried to reverse the cardiorespiratory arrest suffered by the victim with advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers, although these did not work and the Summa 112 staff ended up confirming the death of the victim.
