One injustice after another. Last November 11, a young woman was in public transport when he realized that one of the passengers, identified as Eduardo Alfredo Nunez Guerrero, recorded it. Outraged, she complained to him and, with the help of the other people, they managed to call the police. One of the PNP troops who attended was Alexis Garcia Herediawho instead of carrying out his work, harassed her again, as denounced by the victim on her social networks.
“I was going to the beach with my mom and my 8-year-old sister when When I got off the bus, I realized that Eduardo Alfredo was recording me under my skirt.. When I confronted him, the guy denied it and said that he had not recorded anything, but when a man on the bus also confronted him, he began to say “I’m going to delete it, I’m going to delete it,” the victim wrote via Instagram.
As detailed, she and the other passengers requested the support of the National Police of Peru, for which three non-commissioned officers appeared. They confiscated the subject’s cell phone and identity document (DNI) and assured the victim that they would take him to the police station.
After said intervention, one of the non-commissioned officers, identified as Alexis García Heredia, asked the victim for her ID and cell phone number to inform her about the progress of the case. It was then that the victim suffered harassment again.
“When we talked on WhatsApp, the policeman Alexis García Heredia did not want to give me the name of the stalker to publish it on networks and, far from that, He took it upon himself to call me a “friend” and on top of that, ask me twice if I was single or “single”. (attached the captures). I wonder, what kind of police officer is this who has just attended a harassment case and then harass the victim? What rotten mind must you have for something like that? she expressed.
The victim filed a complaint against Petty Officer Garcia because you failed to provide the full name of your attacker when you are required by law to do so. In addition, for minimizing his complaint and not opening the corresponding investigation.
In the same way, denounced Eduardo Alfredo Nuñez Guerrero for harassmentpresented the evidence to the Prosecutor’s Office and was summoned in January for psychological tests.
