• Maxi brawl with stabbing in Mondello, 4 young people arrested
  • Pescara. Homophobic aggression, 25 years old beaten by the herd on the waterfront


11 August 2020 They targeted an invalid civilian, with mental problems, hitting him in the house with jets of water while he was resting and then they set the house on fire. The Carabinieri of Castrovillari carried out a precautionary custody order in prison, issued by the Gip of the Court of Castrovillari, at the request of the local prosecutor, against three people accused of fire and trespassing. Furthermore, at the disposal of the Gip of the Juvenile Court of Catanzaro, the military followed up the precautionary measure of placement in the community, for the same crimes, against two other minors. 

The investigation began last August 2 after a fire in a private house. Investigators have reconstructed what happened and identified the authors. The members of the herd, after entering the building to carry out the raid against the victim, quickly left on foot. Before setting the house on fire, the boys who entered taking advantage of the entrance door not perfectly closed, threw water on the disabled person who was sleeping. The man who, after waking up, managed to leave the house before the entire building caught fire, said he had previously suffered similar behavior and was the target of some jets of water by boys who however, on that specific occasion, he had failed to identify. 

The episode brings to mind the one that occurred in Manduria, in Puglia, last year, when a baby gang was stopped for having attacked and beaten to death a disabled person by filming the exploits with their mobile phone. In May, a 19-year-old and a 23-year-old were sentenced to 10 years in prison, another 23 to 8 years and 8 months.
