“I don’t have details of the occurrences of the stab wounds.” But one of the victims was hit in a brawl around turning time. Between yesterday and today we made more than 20 visits to the police station. We arrested a suspect who used a knife to assault a couple. Unfortunately, these episodes occurred. Sorry for the stabbed people. Even with the limitation, the balance was positive – Brenno said, overnight.

The secretary stated that “within the scenario found, the balance was positive” and New Year’s Eve was like “a sunny Sunday in Arpoador”.
— We made a lot of approaches, a lot of single teenagers came to steal. But, within the scenario, I would say that we live as if it were a sunny Sunday in the harpooner. I believe we curb many crimes.
The balance of the secretariat informs that, in the three medical posts, from 5:30 pm on the 31st to 3:30 am on January 1st, 111 people were assisted.
