BAGUIO CITY – A 30-year old manager of an establishment was hurt after a man grabbed him by the nape and spanked his face for no apparent reasons inside a booth at the Session Road in Bloom recently.
Senior Superintendent George D. Daskeo, officer-in-charge of the Baguio City Police Office, identified the victim as Martell John Farnacio Garcia, 30, college graduate, manager, and a resident of Unit 1, Marlon Suites, Amparo Heights, Baguio City while he named the suspect as Marcelo Cordova, of legal age, and a resident of Pacdal, Baguio City.
Initial police investigation showed the victim was inside their booth at the Session road in Bloom when he spotted the suspect walking in front of the area where they were situated, thus, he called for him as he was known to him.
Unfortunately, the suspect immediately went inside the booth, grabbed the suspect by his nape hard and spanked his face before feeling towards an undisclosed direction.
The victim was brought by his relatives to the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center (BGHMC) while the suspect is now the subject of a manhunt operation to answer for the charges of physical injuries with threats to be filed against him before the city prosecutor’s office.
