English translation:Statements for arrest warrant for a person caught in the act
Explanation:
The Auto de Prisão em Flagrante Delito is documentation that allows you to put someone in jail if you catch them while they're committing a crime. The Termos de depoimentos is the description of why you felt it necessary to do so.
In the US, an arrest warrant is not usually issued in such circumstances, being restricted to cases where you determine someone committed a crime and need to find him/her later. But Auto de Prisão covers either after or during commission.
