One woman is dead and another was in critical condition after an attack in the parking lot of a Curridabat dentist office. Police have detained a 25-year-old Nicaraguan man who worked as the office’s security guard.
A report from the Judicial Investigating Organization states that an argument broke out before the first woman, a 38-year-old identified by the last name of Corrales, was stabbed. The second woman suffered her injure when she tried to intervene, agents said. She was described as being in a fragile state when she entered Hospital Calderón Guardia.
The suspect was also injured, having suffered a wound to his groin that was treated at the hospital before he was taken to prosecutors.
