Officials of the La Guaira state police killed a subject during a police confrontation, which occurred this Monday morning, in the 27 de Julio community, Caraballeda parish.
The subject had been pointed out by a citizen, minutes before, of having raped her last Friday when he arrived at her home.
The Secretary of Citizen Security of La Guaira, Andrés Goncalves, reported that during a tour of Tanaguarena and Palmar Este, police commissions received the complaint and immediately initiated a device.
"We made inquiries by Quebrada Seca, Tanaguarena and Blanquita de Pérez and at the height of the Caraballeda Club, we sighted the subject who was called out," he added.
Goncalves said that the subject tried to flee and drew a firearm and fired at the officials who repelled the action.
The subject was taken to the Caraballeda outpatient clinic, where he died a few minutes later. He was identified as Ismael Jesús Piña Báez (35), who is nicknamed the “Latin Lover”.
The security chief pointed out that in the last 15 days there were complaints about the presence of a subject, with similar characteristics, prowling women in dark and lonely areas of the Caraballeda parish.
The officers began investigations to determine if other people were attacked by the subject.
