Residents in the Cuban province of Cienfuegos have taken to social media to warn about the presence of an alleged sexual predator on the loose in this central Cuban city. Several Facebook profiles have identified the fugitive as Dunién Hernández, a resident of Reina Street, Cienfuegos, who allegedly attempted to rape a 14-year-old girl on Tuesday.

According to reports, on Tuesday the man "attacked a young girl on 35th Street between 52nd and 54th." "He put a knife to her throat and raped her, the police tried to catch him but failed!" detailed a post by social media user Jennifer Sánchez Rodríguez. She emphasized that Hernández had previously raped a 14-year-old girl and stabbed a man in the Buenavista neighborhood. "Cienfuegos is terrified because of this, he's still out on the streets!" the post asserted.

However, this version differs from the accounts of neighbors of the alleged victim from Tuesday's incident. They claim that the man attempted to rape the daughter of a woman named Yamitsys, who is a teacher at the Armando Mestre elementary school. He tore off all her clothes, but the girl started screaming loudly. The mother of the minor was taken to the police to give a statement on Wednesday morning, they confirmed. Neighbors reportedly witnessed the moment police arrived to escort her to the station to file a formal complaint against the aggressor, according to a photo posted in the comments section.

The news has outraged residents in the city of Cienfuegos, who have suggested on social media to take to the streets armed with machetes and sticks to catch the man. By noon, he was reportedly seen in the Buenavista neighborhood.

On Wednesday, another alleged sexual predator, a man nicknamed "Timba," was detained in Santiago de Cuba. He allegedly raped a teenage girl between the ages of 14 and 15 on Tuesday night, who is now hospitalized. The Cuban regime stated that the police had to fire a shot into the air to disperse the Santiago residents who were attempting to lynch the rapist.
