The suspect was arrested after he assaulted and insulted his 36-year-old partner in the open. The incident was seen by two witnesses who stopped next to the victim and helped her into their vehicle to go to the Territorial Office of Silves.

The victim was immediately assisted by the GNR and medical assistance was activated. Then, in conjunction with the Faro Intervention Detachment, the GNR began efforts to intercept the suspect, which happened shortly thereafter near the scene of the assault.

The detainee is currently being presented to the Silves Court.
