Marcelo Solano, director of the Municipal Police of San José, indicated that with these actions they hope to restore security in the capital city.

Yesterday, the Fuerza Publica (National Police) arrested four people suspected of assault in Chinatown and in the Parque Nacional.

The murder of Marco Calzada, 19, and Manfred Barberena Novoa, 23, triggered authorities at the national and municipal levels to take firm action.
