Oaxaca, Oaxaca – Three Argentinean tourists -Macarena E., 29 years old; Benjamín C., 23 years old; and Santiago L., 22 years old- were attacked with machetes in the community of Lagunas de Chacahua, in the municipality of Villa de Tututepec on the Oaxacan coast.

According to the local media “Ecos del Pacífico”, tourists who saw the incident reported that the attacker, who works as a mason’s helper, and the tourists were having a conversation when they began to argue and he pulled out his machete to attack them.

The inhabitants tried to separate them and stop the aggression, however, the tourists received wounds to their heads, hands and arms.

The access to Chacahua is by boat, so the inhabitants took the tourists to the town of El Zapotalito where Civil Protection elements arrived and took them to the medical units in Puerto Escondido to be treated.

The alleged attacker is not from Chacahua

Through a communiqué, the municipal government of Villa de Tututepec and the community of Chacahua Isla condemned the attack and clarified that the young assailant is not originally from the community, but from the state of Guerrero and came in search of employment.

They said that the tourists were immediately attended to.

“We ask the Oaxaca Prosecutor’s Office to carry out its work in a professional manner and comply with the corresponding procedures that will allow us to punish the aggression suffered by the 3 Argentine tourists because our municipality has always been characterized by hospitality, security and peace.”

The aggressor was arrested by the local police and consigned to the Viscefiscalía de la Costa, so far his legal situation is not yet known.
