A domestic worker who was injured managed to flee and alert the community, explained Santander’s interior secretary, Jhon Ruiz. “The employee is already receiving medical attention and once she recovers she will be able to tell us what happened to clarify this fact. Several hypotheses are being handled around the case, an alleged debt”, he explained.

The authorities have reported that the neighbors of the victims have beaten two of the aggressors to death. The two bodies were found on the public highway. Police and Army troops have been dispatched to the site to ensure security.
