He performed at dawn in the middle of a persistent drizzle and in a dark area.
He entered a house, robbed, killed a woman and walked away.
A neighbor saw the attacker leave the house, noticed strange attitudes and three blocks away he was intercepted: he
called the police and was arrested.
The homicide occurred during the early hours of this Saturday at 75 between 21 and 22, in the Altos de San Lorenzo neighborhood, on the outskirts of the Buenos Aires capital.
The identity of the victim had not been released this morning by judicial or police sources.
"They are doing the paperwork and notifying the family," they explained to
The alleged perpetrator of the murder is
a 55-year-old man identified as Marcelo Alejandro Saleh
, who lives in the UOM neighborhood of Ensenada, a city near La Plata.
It is in charge of the prosecutor on duty in charge of the UFI 5 of La Plata Juan Menucci.
As it was learned, the suspect was intercepted by a neighbor at 24 and 75. The witness said that he saw Saleh at the victim's house and was struck by the fact that he was
acting upset, nervous.
But also, when he got closer he could see that he had seals, gloves and a barrette.
Also on his clothes you could see stains that would be blood.
When the patrols from the Eighth police station arrived and took Saleh to the section, they were able to verify that he was
also carrying money
(the amount was not specified) that would be part of what was stolen from the house where he killed a woman.
According to reports,
the woman lived alone in the house
and her body was found lying in one of the rooms.
SAME doctors confirmed the death and the case was labeled "homicide on the occasion of robbery."
The autopsy will take place this Saturday at the La Plata police morgue.
