No. 3 ‘most wanted’
nabbed for rape raps
A man tagged as the number three most wanted person in Bacolod City was apprehended by joint operatives of Police Station 7 and the Bacolod City Warrant and Subpoena Section, at about 1:30 p.m. Monday, at his residence in Brgy. Alijis.
WSS chief, Senior Insp. Charles Gever, identified the one arrested as Erwin Nadula, 39, of Purok Sambag in Brgy. Alijis.
Nadula was apprehended by Senior Police Officer 1 Jim Augostos Velasco, PO3 Nestor Mioten and Evans Diaz, and PO2 Jeffrey Solas, Arnold Buenafe and Warren dela Cerna on the strength of an arrest warrant for rape issued by Bacolod Regional Trial Court Branch 41 Judge Ray Alan Drilon, who denied him bail, Gever said.
He added that the charges were filed against Nadula by his 13-year-old neighbor, who claimed that he raped her.
Nadula is now detained at the lock-up cell of Police Station 7 and will later be transferred to the Bacolod City District Jail.*APN
A trisikad driver fell into the sea and drowned at the port of the Bacolod Real Estate Development Corporation at about 9 p.m. Monday.
Philippine Coast Guard-Bacolod chief, Lt. Commander Domenador Senador, said the victim was rescued by the crew of M/V Angeline barge and rushed to the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital, where he was declared dead.
Station 1 commander Chief Insp. Ulysses Ortiz said the victim, who remained unidentified up to press time, is described to be between 35 and 40 years old, about 5 feet and 2 inches tall and slim in build.
He added that the man was wearing a white shirt and green short pants, while his trisikad was retrieved from the sea minutes later.
The Station 1 policemen, who investigated the incident, said they did not see any signs of injury that would indicate foul play behind the man’s death.
Senador said they believe the victim was riding his trisikad and fell into the water when he lost control of his vehicle.
The police are appealing to those whose loved ones failed to go home, or are missing to identify the victim at the morgue of the CLMMRH.*APN
