A man has allegedly caught his girlfriend's tongue for breaking up with him.
Leandro Trejo, 28, has been accused of stabbing his 18-year-old ex girlfriend, Nicole Kleer severally after she called time on their relationship.
According to reports, he confronted her as she was walking home with a friend in the San Fernando area of Buenos Aires, Argentina. He allegedly rode up to her on his motorbike and blocked her path before bringing out a knife and stabbing her in the neck, arms, head,face and ear. When she tried to scream for help, he cut her tongue.
Her dad, Claudio Kleer, told local media: "I am indignant and at the same time very sad, because our whole society is asking that justice serves those victims of gender violence but lamentably this is not happening.
The aggressor, Leandro Trejo, was hardly even detained for two hours, because they considered her wounds minor, when it was clearly an attempt at femicide. Nicole's friend had to throw herself on top of the attacker with the help of a passing man. The fact that she is alive is pure luck."
Nicole's legal representative, Maria Elena Leuzzi, said: "The subject began to follow her, because she told him she wanted to end their two month relationship."She had already realised he was a violent man. "She told him to leave her alone, after which he rode home, got a knife and came back to kill her."
