A MEMBER of the Special Police Auxiliary Unit (SPAU) was wounded while five other were unscathed in a gun attack by bandits in the hinterlands of Zamboanga del Norte.

The Zamboanga del Norte police said the incident took place around 7:20 a.m. Thursday at Sitio Codugon in the village of Balas, Labason town.

Wounded was SPAU member of Labason town, Salvador Clata, who was rushed to Dipolog City for medical treatment, the police said.

The police, however, did not identify Clata’s five companions.
