Around 7:00 pm local time, the attacker entered the church of San Isidro in the city center and began arguing with the parishioners, urging them to practice Islam. After that, he left the building, but soon returned and seriously injured the priest. After that, the man went to the church of La Palma, located nearby, and began to destroy the decoration of the temple. The church minister asked him to leave the temple, but the offender reacted aggressively. He threatened two women in the second church and then started harassing the sexton.
