QCOSTARICA – Five persons arrested, including two women, are the result of several raids by Organismo de Investigacion Judicial (OIJ) agents in Carmen de Goicoechea and Concepción Abajo de Alajuelita, suspects in the death of Gerardo Cruz, the young man who denounced a sexual harasser on the streets of San Jose.

Days following the social media upload of the video of a man videoing up a woman’s skirt, on October 7, 2015, Gerardo, on his way from work, was attacked by two men.

The women arrested Monday, suspected to have contracted the hired killers, have been identified as mother and daughter – Fernandez and Valerin, 41 years of age and daughter 19 years of age, respectively.

Among the evidence obtained during the raids are cellular phone messages linking the accused, that could be the key in determining their guilt.

For now, investigators are treating the crime as a robbery, but do not rule out other motives for the attack.
