The intruders, who arrived after 8:30 of the night to this locality, entered the house where I was Manuel Caballero and his wife, to demand will be given a "pre-columbian golden frog" that one of their children had found in the mountains near Brenon. It is a piece of solid gold, about two cubic inches of thickness, which was found by the son of the couple and apparently had been trying to sell from several weeks ago. The subjects receiving no response of the location of this part began to threaten the farmer and shot him in the face. At that time, the wife of the man managed to run to the back of the house and in the dark made her way for help to the residences of some neighbors. Rony Eliécer Caballero, a neighbor of the family, said that the woman was crying, nervous and hysterical to his house, asking for help and requesting that he advise her son, to delay in arriving at the house, so as not to encounter the assailants. The neighbor narrated that the subject left the scene in a car that was waiting to about 500 meters down from the house of the farmer, and fled in the direction of the border with Costa Rica in Paso Canoas.
