On September 13, 2023 at approximately 1843 hours, Deputy Spence was dispatched to [100 BLOCK] Princeton Way in reference to a domestic dispute in progress. Upon arrival, Deputy Spence met with [VICTIM #1] who provided the following information.
[VICTIM #1] advised that she and her husband, Manuel Aguero were in an argument that turned physical. She stated that Manuel got angry with her because one of his friends came over and she was nice to him and whispered to him “go to the back” where he was. [VICTIM #1] advised Manuel confronted her about it and started comparing her to one of his ex-girlfriends who cheated on him. She stated he began calling her names and cursing at her.
She advised the arguing continued and escalated to the point that Manuel threw a slushy at her. [VICTIM #1] advised she slapped him in the face and in retaliation, he grabbed her by the throat as if to strangle her and began pushing her. She advised she was scared and grabbed his arm to remove his hand from her throat.
[VICTIM #1] stated he pushed her to the ground then grabbed her by the arms and dragged her out the front door. She then advised he slapped her in the face so hard that her ears began ringing. [VICTIM #1] stated both Juvenile #1 and Juvenile #2 grabbed a broom and mop and began hitting Manuel, telling him to get off their mom.
Deputy Spence observed scratch marks on [VICTIM #1]’ neck consistent with being strangled and redness on her face consistent with being slapped.
Deputy Spence then met with Manuel, who was bringing [VICTIM #1]’ belongings out of the house in trash bags. He advised she stated “I’m tired of your sh*t” so he wanted her to leave. Manuel then provided the following information. He advised he was angry with her because she was nice to his friend and whispered to him “go to the back” when she’s normally not nice to any of his friends.
Manuel stated he confronted her about it because he thought she was hiding something. He said she told him to stop comparing her to his ex-girlfriend and said she was “tired of my sh*t”. Manuel advised he threw a slushy at her but it hit the wall instead of her. He stated [VICTIM #1] came toward him and slapped him in the face. Manuel advised that he pushed her off of him and left the residence with Juvenile #1 for a brief period and then returned.
Deputy Spence requested Manuel to escort him through the house and show him where the incident took place. Deputy Spence observed the residence to be in disarray and a liquid on the floor consistent with both of their stories.
Based on testimonial and physical evidence of [VICTIM #1]’ injuries, Deputy Spence placed Manuel under arrest and put him in his patrol vehicle.
Deputy Spence advised [VICTIM #1] the incident would be documented and gave her a Crime Victim Bill of Rights Notification form and informed her of the resources available to her.
Deputy Spence transported Manuel to Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office and upon arrival charged him with O.C.G.A 16-5-21, Aggravated Assault (Family Violence) and two counts of O.C.G.A 16-5-10, Cruelty to Children 3rd Degree on warrantless arrest #67857. Deputy Spence then turned Manuel over to booking staff without incident.
