A 40-year-old Republican National Guard (GNR) military man was stabbed this morning 26th January by three individuals in the area of Campanário.

According to DAILY, the victim was off duty and was attacked when he went to the cafe accompanied by his family, where he was approached by these individuals, who hit him in the arm.

It is known that in these last days the GNR have carried out a service where the alleged aggressors were targeted and booked, all leading to believe that it was a reprisal.

The perpetrators of the crime fled but were soon identified and detained by the GNR. They are currently in the GNR barracks that will later contact the Public Prosecutor to see if they will or will not be present today in court.
