Bárbara italia méndez was a 27-year old student and volunteer working for street children when she was detained on 4 may 2006 by members of the mexican federal preventive police in san salvador atenco, mexico state. She had gone there to show support for the community after violence between the police and protestors resulted in the death of a child. Police officers broke into the house where she was seeking refuge and arrested her without explanation. The officers pulled her hair, beat her, and forced her into a state police vehicle with her shirt pulled over her head. She was made to lie on top of other detainees, and during the journey to the prison police officers sexually assaulted her, raping her repeatedly.
