Kagawad accused of beating up vendor

A BARANGAY kagawad is facing charges of physical injuiries and grave threat along with three of his associates, after a 30-year-old vendor accused them of beating him up right inside the barangay hall in Sta. Mesa, Manila on Thursday.

They were identified as Ryan Aguilos, a kagawad of barangay  628, Zone 63 and Fernando Soriano, Bobby Mancilla and Henry Huerta, all of 2175 Road ll NDC Compound, Sta. Mesa, Manila.                                                                                

A report from Corporal Dean Mark Regala submitted to Captain Henry Navarro,  chief of the Manila Police District-General Assignment Investigation Section, said that the mauling allegedly took place at around 5 p.m.

Complainant Jonathan Contibo, of 726  R. Hidalgo St. Quiapo, Manila, told the police that Aguilos asked him to go with him to the barangay hall and that he agreed, thinking that they will only talk.  Once there however, Contibo claimed he was immediately punched, with the three others joining in and mauled him.                             

Contibo proceeded to file a complaint as soon as the mauling was over.   

The case is being investigated.
