During the quarrel, the attackers reproached her that she and her patients were the focus of the coronavirus infection and that they had people, whom they would send to harm them.

Residents of the Hogar del Pescador subdivision noticed the aggression and immediately called the emergency number 911 to request the intervention of the police, since the nurse was already injured in the neck, and she was losing a lot of blood.

The daughter of the victim reported that her attackers tried to flee the scene on foot, and left an abandoned motorcycle. However, one block away from their home they were detained by preventive police agents, who transferred them to the municipal police station to define their legal situation.
