The attempted femicide occurred while the woman was waiting for a bus to her workplace. She, her child, and her current partner were waiting at "La Rotonda" on Carretera del Morro, when suddenly her ex-partner appeared, apparently having been watching the area.

The victim, identified by the mentioned journalist as Emilia Sabigne Borjas, is 38 years old and resides in the Vista Hermosa neighborhood. According to witnesses, the man tried to slit Emilia's throat and managed to wound her, although the swift intervention of bystanders prevented him from achieving his intent.

The alleged attacker, who has been identified by name, is now in custody.

"Once again, I call upon the authorities of Santiago de Cuba, Beatriz Johnson Urrutia, Secretary of the Communist Party, the new Governor Manuel Falcon Hernandez, the Ministry of the Interior, and all its departments, since a prior complaint had been made, to seek justice and appropriately sanction these unfortunate acts of violence," said Mayeta.
