A murder was committed right in the heart of Valladolid’s Historic Center, as a man tried to resist a couple of assailants, who gave him a brutal beating hitting him in the head with a motorcycle helmet.
VALLADOLID, Yucatán, August 11.- A robbery attempt culminated in a brutal murder on the evening of Sunday August 11th, in the Historic Center of Valladolid, on Calle 39 (between 46 and 48).
Witnesses point out that the victim, approximately 45 years old, was walking in front of the site commonly known as Pasaje Alcocer, when he was approached by two men, who apparently tried to assault him and, when he resisted, began to beat him brutally.
One of the assailants hit him repeatedly to the skull with a motorcycle helmet, which caused the victim to fall down to the pavement.
The two criminals fled the scene and left the victim, who was dressed in a white shirt, blue pants and black shoes, laying in a pool of blood, with a backpack at his side.
Some witnesses point out that minutes after the tragic event, the victim was still alive, however, the numerous heavy blows to the head caused him to finally die.
The tragic event occurred around 9:45 PM.
Staff of the Forensic Medical Service arrived on site to cordon off the area and carry out the corresponding investigations, while personnel of different police corporations set up a quick search operation to try to locate the murderers, however, so far no arrests have been made in relation to this crime.
The news ran like wildfire among the Valladolid community, which refuses to believe that a crime of this nature has been committed in the Historic Center, where there are supposedly dozens of police agents guarding the streets.
