After committing the attack, one of the assailants threw a ball of paper with the message: “Cuautla is ours and we are not going to let it go”as revealed by the State Prosecutor’s Office.

One day before this attack, “El Cholo”, 37 years old, was arrested by members of the Navy inside a bar in the community of Tetelcingo, along with another man identified as Jorge Arturo, 33 years old.

At the time of capture, both subjects were armed and had several packages of drugs known as crystal.

It should be noted that the Cuautla prison has been the scene of acts of violence for years, since overcrowding and poor security conditions have generated fights and problems, both inside and outside this prison.
