A sixty-year-old man with a mental disability is hospitalized in intensive care at the Hospital de Abrantes, in “serious condition”, after being violently attacked nearly two weeks ago. The victim was sodomized with a hot iron after having stolen a loaf of bread from a bakery.
A hospital source confirms that, following the attacks, the man “was at risk of his life, as he was without a rectum and the anus had to be reconstructed” surgically. Although he has already come out of the coma, his state of health continues to inspire care and “he will have sequelae for the rest of his life”.
In addition to being sodomized, the victim was left with serious injuries in the area between her knees and waist, due to the attacks, which people from the village where she lives in, without anyone helping her. The same source reveals that the Judiciary Police has already carried out investigations and that, despite being a public crime, the parents will also file a criminal complaint.
With cognitive impairment and psychiatric disorders, the man will also have an eating compulsion that leads him to frequently steal bread. However, from what JN found out, “he is a person integrated into the community and without any kind of evil”. The incident reportedly took place in Paço da Comenda, Tomar.
