The state Human Rights Commission released two warnings against Mexicali Police Department due to a couple of incidents that affected victims.

In the first case the commission warned the city for the June 2019 case of the death of a woman.

The incident started out in June 9, when a person named Lourdes called the police to request help after another woman, who was identified as Mariana, 55, was allegedly assaulted by her husband.

The woman was injured in her Colonia Solidaridad Social residence.

The police did not arrive in the scene in order to arrest the suspect although the agency was called twice.

The commission added that recently next day the suspect’s son-in-law found the suspect, who was identified as Jorge, with blood stains and under the influence. In the scene the victim was found dead.

In the second case the commission warned the police for the October 2020 assault and arrest of an individual identified as Javier, 18.

The victim was in a vehicle in downtown Mexicali with his girlfriend when a police officer demanded the teenager to exit.

The victim first rejected leaving the vehicle.

The police officer, who was only identified as Javier, was able to open the door and forced the victim outside.

The teenager was beaten by the agent.

The victim was then handcuffed and transported to the police headquarters in a patrol car.

Another police officer allegedly assaulted the victim while being transported.

Upon reaching the police headquarters the agents realized they had no grounds to turn the arrested man to the authorities.

The victim was then released from custody.
