At that moment, there was a collision between the bike and the vehicle of the accused, who was also parking. When trying to intercede on behalf of her husband, who was being verbally assaulted, according to the Guarda Municipal (Municipal Guard), the victim said that she would call the police and heard when the accused called her macaca (monkey).

Officials of the Guarda Municipal were alerted and the accused was caught and arrested in the act and taken to 15th DPC Delegacia de Polícia Civil (Civil Police Precinct), where bail was arbitrated by the delegate on duty.
