Authorities have arrested the man who was caught physically abusing his two children after a video of the abuse went viral on social media.
Senior Supt. Allan Nobleza, Muntinlupa City Police chief, said Reymond San Juan, 26, a tricycle driver, was arrested on Wednesday morning.
San Juan was caught abusing his six-year-old son and three-year-old daughter. He was taken to the Muntinlupa Prosecutor’s Office where he was charged with physical injuries in relation to Republic Act 7610 or child abuse law.
Social workers rescued the two children on Tuesday.
