A woman appeared before the unit against gender violence in the province of Puerto Plata and there she took out a knife with the intention of stabbing the coordinator of the department, Magistrate Luisa Marmolejos.

The incident occurred at around 3:30 pm on Thursday when the woman identified as Santina Morel, 48, appeared with the intention of attacking Marmolejos.

A police report establishes that Morel appeared aggressively with a knife in her hand, trying to attack the prosecutor in charge of gender violence.

At the moment when police corporal Sergio de León tried to take away the weapon, the aggressor inflicted a wound on the right palm of his hand, which forced sutures at the Ricardo Limardo hospital.

Morel apparently has mental problems.

Some people complained about the lack of police protection.
