A León, Guanajuato taxi driver allegedly stabbed a passenger to death because he was 5 pesos short to complete the payment of the fee for the trip.
This terrible homicide was perpetrated on Wednesday, February 8th, in the Santo Domingo neighborhood, in León, Guanajuato.
Around 10 pm, the driver of a so-called “green” taxi stopped on Fray Domingo de Betanzos street and began to argue with his client, who told him that he was a few pesos short of paying for the service.
Immediately, both got out of the unit and began to fight.
Preliminary versions refer that during the fight the driver would have pulled a knife from the vehicle to attack the user.
Residents of the area came out of their homes when they heard the shouts, and observed that their neighbor was bleeding profusely while he was walking towards his home, where he died shortly after, while the taxi driver fled the scene at full speed.
The witnesses asked for support from Public Security agents , who shortly after caught up with the alleged murderer and arrested him.
The State Attorney General’s Office reported that the deceased was identified as Arturo de Jesús, who lost his life due to injuries caused by a sharp object.
