2 police officers in trouble over unlawfuL arrest


Two police officers who unlawfully arrested a man are facing multiple cases, including grave misconduct, before the Manila City Prosecutor’s Office on Monday. Senior Police Officer 1 Jay Jay Jacob of Manila Police District-General Assignments Investigation Section identified the policemen as Police Officer 1 Abraham Manlongat Ventura and PO2 Sonny Genleto, who arrested complainant Michael Centeno for unspecified violations last week. The two police officers failed to show up despite an order for them to report to office after the incident. Jacob said the two officers allegedly took Genleto’s watch, cellphone and mountain bike during the reported “arrest” and later received P15,000 for the “suspect’s” release.
