On May 29, Alfredo flowers, decided to end the relationship with his former partner, because during the time they were together he had obsessive and violent behaviors towards him, but the night he announced it, the answer was blows that ended up throwing him down the stairs of his home.
“I wanted to talk to him two days before so that our relationship could end on good terms, but he never allowed a dialogue. That day we went out for a few beers, my ex, my rommie and I, we go back and I go up to the room to clean my pets, when all of a sudden he catches up to me at the top and says: ‘what the hell is wrong with you? And when I try to calm him down, because he was very aggressive, he slams me against the wall after telling him that this was our last day as boyfriends, “Flores told MILLENNIUM.
Alejandro, Alfredo’s ex-partner, kept hitting him in the face and pulled him by the hair until they reached the stairs.
“I was trying to get away from him, but it was impossible, because he is taller than me, so in a moment we reached the edge of the stairs and after the blows, we fell from the stairs. Imagine, it’s four floors. I could not believe what was happening, because in addition to being with my roommate, my mother was there, they did not know what to do, “he said.
Once Alfredo’s mother and his rommie They realized what had happened, they “begged” Alejandro to stop beating him.
“After beating me he said, ‘give me the bracelet that I gave you,’ and I said ‘yes, but get out of my house,’ and he left,” he said.
However, the attacks against Alfredo did not end there, as Alejandro would take revenge two months later for ending their relationship.
“It was about an hour after the fight when he sent me a message on my cell phone saying that he had supposedly been beaten while leaving my house. Obviously I was scared, my first reaction was to go looking for him and that was when I opened the door of my house and there was his brother and another person. They began to beat me too, they did want to kill me, “he said.
Alfredo was attacked by his ex-brother-in-law wearing a boxer, causing various fractures to his face and a deviation of the nasal septum, and also injured his rommie, who tried to prevent the attackers from ending the life of his friend.
“He wanted to kill me, he didn’t want to hurt me. He told me, ‘so you can learn, fucking little jotito’. I just felt the blows on my face. My neighbors came to my defense, and when that happens, the attackers leave and before getting into their truck, one of them yells, takes out his rifle. I was scared, ”he said.
It was not attempted murder, it was family violence: MP
Alfredo attended two days later the Agency Specialized in Attention to Users of the LGBT + community, located between Zarzo and Violeta streets in the Guerrero neighborhood, in the Cuauhtémoc mayor’s office, to denounce their attackers.
“My complaint does not say anything, it details that they beat me and left me lying on the floor, for which I ask to exercise my rights. When the complaint is read it seems as if it were just a fight between gays, but there was also threats of death and they put none of that in my statement. The investigation folder was not opened for attempted homicide, but for family violence ”, he explained.
He regretted that the authorities do not handle these cases from a gender perspectiveThe head of the unit, Martha Elías Melo, who opened the file CI-FIDAGAP / LGBTTI / UI2C / D / 00171 / 05-2021, has mistreated him.
“After a review, a coroner told me that my nose needed an operation, which the attackers have to pay for, but for that to happen, you have to like that doctor. In other words, they don’t want to do their job, because I just talked to the manager and she told me what to do. This she told me when pressuring her so that my case does not go unpunished, because my attackers are out there, with the risk that something will happen to me or they will try to kill me again, “he said.
Later he went to a meeting with the Coordinator of Attention and Education, of the Council to Prevent and Eliminate Discrimination in Mexico City (Copred), Alfonso García Castillo, and both agreed that, according to the type of violence that occurred, it was not family violence, but an attempted hate crime.
Alfredo only asks that his case be promptly answered, he asks for justice and that the damage caused be repaired.
“Today I ask that violence not be normalized of any kind. Now I was saved, because if my friend Victor had not come out to defend me and be the sack of potatoes that he was while receiving the blows, they would kill me, “he concluded.
