Two men, already under investigation for crimes involving violence against women and already recipients of the precautionary measures of the prohibition of approach and prohibition of communication with the offended party by any means, were arrested by order of the Etna prosecutor. The first is a 39-year-old from Catania who, in recent days, had carried out a series of stalking and phone calls of all kinds, reaching the 27-year-old ex-partner on his scooter, who had just parked the car near via Gold Medals, preventing her from getting out of the vehicle. “Gross … I’ll beat you up,” he told her, along with a long series of insults. So serious as to cause the victim to fear the worst and take back the motorcycle license plate with the mobile phone. The man, after having initially gone away, returned after a few minutes with a threatening and intimidating air and approached her again, only to then go away as soon as he realized that the ex was talking on the phone with the carabinieri. The complaint presented by the victim and the information immediately shared with the competent magistrate provided the judge with the evidence that allowed the stalker to be arrested and transferred to prison. The second case concerns the arrest of a 41-year-old from Mascalucia, also carried out by the carabinieri. He has repeatedly violated the ban on communication with his 42-year-old ex-wife, sending her numerous messages which show, on the one hand, the strong feeling of jealousy that continues to animate his conduct. He also tormented her through social networks and on occasions of some video calls with his son, which take place in the presence of the mother, he insulted the woman. As decided by the judge, the man was placed under house arrest with the obligation to wear an electronic bracelet.
