San José, Costa Rica - On Monday, doctors at the Calderón Guardia Hospital in San José, the capital city of Costa Rica confirmed that Gérardo Cruz Barquero, 22, is in stable condition after being stabbed twice by several suspects. Barquero was stabbed on October 7 in the abdomen and the thorax.
Barquero recently made news after he posted a video where he caught Luis Fernando Umaña Delgado, a government accountant for the National Ministry of Finance following an unidentified woman while he was using his cellphone to upskirt record the unsuspecting woman. Delgado could be seen following the woman and video recording under her dress.
Barquero approached the woman to alert her and he confronted Delgado and continued to record him as he walked away trying to elude Barquero. Barquero uploaded several videos on his Facebook page exposing Delgado's perverted act of video recording an upskirt of the woman. The videos of Delgado's upskirt went viral.
Police are investigating Barquero's stabbing, but indicated that they don't believe it is related to Delgado's upskirt public incident. Barquero is being hailed as a hero for exposing Delgado's perverted act.
