SAN LEONARDO, Nueva Ecija – A man accused of adultery who survived a supposed samurai attack by the husband of a woman he was having an illicit affair with was re-arrested by the police on Wednesday here.
Town police head Major Jeffrey Alivia identified the arrested suspect as Noli Carpeso, 39, company checker, of Bgy. Nieves, this town.
He finally fell into police hands less than five years after he and his woman-lover jumped bail and Judge Rixon M. Girong, of the municipal trial court here issued an arrest warrant against them on June 24, 2015.
Alivia said his men collared the suspect at his hideout at 11:20 a.m.
SSgt. Norwin Cunanan, case investigator said the adultery charges stemmed from his illicit affair with a married woman, whose aggrieved husband caused the filing of the case back then in 2015.
Cunanan said the husband, a vegetable dealer who got suspicious of his wife’s illicit relationship, caught the suspect and his wife having a date inside a hotel room here.
“Tumawag nga sa amin yung may-ari ng hotel noon at may isang lalaki daw na nagwawala armado ng samurai at pinagtataga ang pinto ng isang kuwarto,” said Cunanan.
“Pinaghahanap ng complainant yung misis niya sa hotel, eh doon niya natagpuan yung tricycle nilang mag-asawa kaya sila natunton, kaya hawak ang samurai pilit nitong pinalalabas ang suspect na kabit ni misis niya, kaya dito na kami nagresponde,” added Cunanan.
“Nagkunwaring bibiyahe ng gulay sa Divisoria si lalaking complainant, iniwan niya ang kanyang trak sa Gapan at umuwi ng bahay dahil kapitbahay lang nila iyung kabit ng misis niya eh,” he said.
Meanwhile, Cunanan, however, said the suspect’s co-accused in the adultery case remains at-large. The suspect and his married lover jumped bail and went into hiding, causing the issuance of an arrest warrant against them by the MTC here, he added.
