The incident took place in Moreno Square, in front of the headquarters of the Buenos Aires government, of the city of La Plata, in the eastern Argentine province of Buenos Aires.

The two men, both reportedly window cleaners who have not been named, are said to have begun fighting for reasons unknown. One of the men then reportedly pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim, who collapsed to the ground.
