A Buenos Aires police officer stabbed to death this Saturday at her home in Rafael Castillo (La Matanza) her ex-boyfriend, who would have entered

through the roof

by force and breached a perimeter due to

complaints of gender violence


The event occurred this Saturday in Nicolás Dávila at 1700, between Saladillo and Ángel Hubac.

There lives the officer Érica Giménez (35), who works in the Local Prevention Police Unit (UPPL) of La Matanza.

According to sources of the investigation, Giménez reported that his ex-partner, identified as Nahuel Cruz (29) entered the house after jumping through the roof and forcing the back door.

The man asked for his cell phone to check it and began looking for it throughout the house until he found it and smashed it against the wall.

According to police testimony,

Cruz pulled out a knife and after threatening to kill her

, tried to hurt her, for which they started a fight until she took the weapon from him and stabbed him in the left side of the chest.

The troops called an ambulance and medical personnel confirmed

the death of the man,

whose body was left inside the house.

Prosecutor Gastón Duplaá, in charge of the Intentional Homicide Functional Instruction Unit (UFI) of the La Matanza Judicial Department, ordered that the expertise be carried out by the Argentine National Gendarmerie (GNA).

The investigators established that Cruz had a ban on approaching and several previous complaints, the last of them on Monday of this week.

On that occasion, around 3 in the morning, her ex-boyfriend also entered her house, jumping from the roof and told her that he was going to commit suicide if she did not agree to show him her cell phone.

After that, the man began to rummage through the closet and when he could not find the woman's phone, he grabbed money that she had in a wallet, for which they began to struggle until he bit her on the arm and caused a bruise.

In addition, on the night of

Friday, February 3, he also entered the house and they argued

because he wanted to check his cell phone, but Giménez hid it inside the bulletproof vest cover and convinced him to go to sleep.

The next morning, they both started fighting because he didn't want the police to go to work and he threatened to take the dog away, so there was another fight in which she suffered a mark on her arm.


in June of last year there was another complaint for "injuries"

that resided in the UFI 1 of La Matanza.

With these data,

the prosecutor Duplaá considered that it was a "homicide in legitimate defense"

and Giménez was released.
