A 26 year old Bolivian man has been arrested and charged with gender violence crimes after he was seen kicking and punching his 17 year old girlfriend for around three minutes. The incident was captured on CCTV but the young woman, a Czech national, refused to press charges against her boyfriend as she had what the police described as “a strong emotional attachment to the man”. They clearly felt her feelings were misplaced although they were still able to arrest the man on the basis of the CCTV images and the fact that the girl was a minor. These images had only come to light by accident while police were investigating an unrelated report of property damage. They were then able to trace the couple after some diligent police work.
