Street Discussion Ends with Bottle Attack (Peninsular Digital, 12/23/12)
La Paz, BC Sur - When Jesús Esquivel Castillo went to a stranger’s door, a bottle hit him in the head when he asked why they had parked a vehicle at the entrance to his residence garage, located at calle Blanca between Arriero and Hacienda.
Don Jesús, was attacked because a vehicle obstructed the entrance to his garage and he went to the owner of the car to ask him to move it, however, instead of a positive response, he received a series of insults followed by forceful bottle in the head, and so apparently the matter was ended, because the attacker ran away and was lost in the streets of the suburban colony.
Municipal unit SP 34 agents learned of the surprise attack and arrived at the location in the early hours on Saturday, to first seek medical help for Don Jesus and then combed the area in search of the aggressor with unsuccessful results. http://peninsulardigital.com/sucesos/con-certero-botellazo-puso-fin-a-callejera-discusion/99323
