A man accused of rape shoots teenager in Caracas
A man identified as Wilmer Joseph Maestre, 19, accused of having raped and murdered three women in Caracas, has stricken again. Maestre shot a boy in a low-income sector in Caracas late on Tuesday.
Police sources confirmed that Maestre is hiding in the area, although some people said they spotted the suspect in other sectors.
A picture of Maestre has been disseminated via social networks after he killed two women on January 25.
The man tried to rape a boy, 15, on February 5, but after failing to do so, he brutally battered the victim.
Why did Gerardo come to Caracas? One day he took the decision, handed the car keys to his father, gave him his share of the cloth business they both owned in San Cristóbal and kissed his wife and two sons goodbye. "He told us he was going to continue fighting for Venezuela," the wife says. That was in mid-2013. He has been imprisoned since May 8, 2014.
