Police arrest Japanese for harassing neighbor

August 16, 2017

A Japanese national was arrested after harassing his neighbor in Paranaque City Tuesday evening, police said.

Police Officer 3 Napoleon Mallare Jr. of Paranaque City Police Station said the Japanese went to the resident of Roberto Medina at #46 Hanoy Extension, BF Northwest carrying a bolo measuring around 19 inches and a document.

Mallare said the Japanese was very angry while showing the document to Medina. Medina then called for the assistance of the security guards that resulted in the arrest of the Japanese national.

Mallare, in a phone interview, said both men had a feud last March 23 after the Japanese stabbed Medina.

“I think the document he is showing is related to their case last March 23 when Murasaki stabbed Medina,” he said.  The Japanese may face  charges of grave threat and illegal possession of bladed weapon. Ella Dionisio/DMS
