CEBU CITY, Philippines — Police will file alarm and scandal complaints against three men, who were arrested for being involved in a rumble near a gasoline station in Barangay Kamputhaw in Cebu City at around 1 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 16.
Police Major Nolan Tagsip, chief of the Abellana Police Station, said that they would file these complaints on Tuesday, Jan. 17, even if the involved parties had agreed to settle amicably.
