NAPLES. A 46-year-old – already known to the police – was arrested this morning in Naples, accused of having repeatedly beaten his wife with the metal rod of a broom. The man, stopped by the carabinieri, will have to answer for family mistreatment and injuries.
The alert to the police came from 112, after the woman, a 44-year-old who reported a “facial trauma” to the face, arrived at the Pellegrini hospital. Her husband was also in the hospital, who fled as soon as he saw the soldiers arrive. Tracked down in his home shortly after, he was arrested. With the victim, several episodes of domestic violence that took place over the years were subsequently reconstructed. The 46-year-old is now awaiting trial, while his wife will be followed by an anti-violence center.
In Milan attacked while returning home
A new house of sexual violence on the street also took place in Milan. The victim is a 30-year-old bartender who on Monday, in the Niguarda area, was returning home from work when a man blocked her and pushed her to the wall, to the point of being abused. The violence took place just before 10pm.
A lightning-fast act, so much so that the woman managed to free herself and call for help shortly after. According to the account he gave to the authorities, the culprit was a dark-skinned man who fled as soon as the victim screamed for help. The man allegedly took advantage of the shelter offered by that area, where at the time of the rape almost all the shops in the area are closed.
After asking for help, the girl called 112, in shock. The policemen of the cars and of the Greco-Turro police station listened to the victim’s story and a long “hunt” lasting hours on the trail of the attacker started. But the man has not yet been found: the policemen are viewing the videos of the many cameras in the area and are working to extrapolate some frames of the rapist. There are currently no other similar cases of violence in the area in the past.
