A MAN in possession of an airgun and bladed weapon was nabbed in Paco, Manila the other day by operatives from the Manila Police District (MPD) after a woman complained about him while Manila Mayor Isko Moreno was live on social media.
Dominique Carawi, a caretaker, of Sto. Domingo, Nueva Ecija and residing at No. 1651 Santiago St., Bgy. 684, Paco, Manila, still had the bladed weapon tucked in his waist when arrested.
It was learned that Moreno was on live broadcast updating the residents on the status of the city when a woman commented and sought help, saying her life was in danger from her live-in partner partner who was armed with a gun and a knife.
Moreno immediately ordered the police to pay the area a visit and it was then that Carawi was found emerging from his home with a gun placed inside a sack.
He was arrested and is now at the MPD Custodial Jail. Police filed against him charges for violation of Republic Act 9262 (Violence Against Women and their Children Act), RA 10591 (Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act) and Batas Pambansa Bilang 6 (Illegal Possession of Deadly Weapon) before the Manila Prosecutors’ Office.
