PSP was “quick” to arrest two men for domestic violence to protect the victims

in Portimão

Two men, aged 47 and 50, were arrested in Portimão for domestic violence, in different cases, but with the common denominator of representing a high and imminent risk to the physical integrity of the victims.

This led to the «quick development of all necessary measures», in order to ensure the safety of the victims.

The first arrest took place last Tuesday, in compliance with an arrest warrant issued by the Public Prosecutor's Office of Portimão, «as the investigation revealed strong evidence of crimes of domestic violence, rape and sexual coercion». The suspect has a criminal record for the same crimes.

Yesterday, Thursday, after house searches, a 6.35 mm caliber firearm was seized from a second man, suspected of using it to threaten the victim.

After presenting the detainees to the Court, preventive detention was ordered for the detainee accused of the crimes of domestic violence, rape and sexual coercion and an identity and residence order was ordered for the detainee accused of the crimes of domestic violence and possession of a prohibited weapon.
