Spanish term or phrase: Vahado
From an affidavit. I suspect it's a typo, but it may be a key detail, so I wanted to get some second opinions.

[NOMBRE] con número de identidad [XXXX] falleció el [XX de XX de XXXX] siendo vahado y luego acribillado con arma blanca.

As is probably evident, this is from a legal document concerning a murder. It's from Honduras, if that's relevant.

Thank you!

English translation:thrown/pushed to the ground
Explanation:
"vahado" has two absolutely typical mis-spellings in LatAM Spanish --> "bajado"
where "bajado" = "thrown/pushed to the ground" in this context.

The victim was "thrown/pushed to the ground and stabbed repeatedly".
