On November 30, 2019, a woman denounced her 15-year-old sister’s partner for groping a 3-year-old girl, the sister of her concubine. Police mistakenly arrested a young man for having the same name as the attacker.
“It was 17 days, but it seemed like a thousand. There are people who did things very wrong. They did a lot of damage to me and my family, ”said Neris Gabriel Ferreyra, in dialogue with El Territorio. And he remarked: “It did not occur to me to accuse myself of something so serious. It was a nightmare”.
A young man identified as Neris Gabriel F., 22, was detained by the Missions Police when he was working as a bricklayer in the home of an officer from the Women’s Police Station.
From the first moment of his arrest, both the young man and his family and friends insisted on his innocence, demonstrating in front of the Fifth Section insisting on his release.
In addition, among the protesters was the mother of the alleged victim, who stated that the detainee is in that situation by mistake since her daughter’s partner is the one who abused the little girl.
The authorities of the Women’s Police Station took responsibility for the arrest of the innocent, by confusing him with Gabriel Neris F. (24), alias “Chuvi”, who was denounced for abusing a child under 3 years of age and threatening the relatives of what same.
