The man got upset because his wife said that she wanted to work, so the subject assaulted her verbally and then physically.
Antonio de Jesus Q.A was charged for having savagely assaulted his wife, DMCC, because he does not want her to work, since he thinks she will cheat on him (according to the man’s statement).

While she was still at home, the attacker entered, and started verbally assaulting her, throwing things to the floor, he found the victim’s purse, took her cell phone, threw it against the wall, then approached her and hit her on the face.
The woman tried to escape, but he pulled her by the arm, threw her on the floor and began kicking her in different parts of the body. The woman got up and managed to leave the house. With the help of her neighbors, she called the police and the officers finally detained the aggressor.
According to Gina Villagómez, researcher at the Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán UADY, and member of the council of support for women of the city of Mérida, Yucatán occupies the seventh place in violence against women and minors nationwide.
The Psycho-pedagogical and Re-education Center for Men in Mérida that was created in 2007 and that was recently relocated to Colonia Juan Pablo II, provided attention to over 1,000 men during 2018, in order to eradicate their violent behavior towards women.
However, gender violence in Merida is still a very serious problem that needs to be solved by the local authorities.
