Man indicted for attempted arson

THE Office of the Cebu City Prosecutor has indicted a man who allegedly set their house on fire in Upper Peace Valley, Barangay Lahug, Cebu City last Sept. 27, 2017.

Prosecutor Mario Ley Gidayawan found evidence to charge Edwin Cabalida with attempted arson before the Regional Trial Court.

“The accused, with deliberate intent, did burn his house in Upper Peace Valley, Barangay Lahug, Cebu City,” reads the charge sheet.

Cabalida, 34, allegedly attempted to set their house on fire after an argument ensued between him and his cousin.

Cabalida’s neighbor, Edgar Narciso, a 54-year-old tanod, executed an affidavit against the accused.

Narciso said he heard a commotion in their neighborhood involving the respondent and his cousin.

The accused and his relative then engaged in a fistfight.

“Minutes later, I knew from the neighbors that the suspect intentional set a fire inside his residence. I immediately looked for the suspect to apprehend him for the malicious act that` he had done,” said Narciso.

Other barangay tanods and policemen also arrived and arrested Cabalida.

A P24,000 bail is set for his temporary freedom. (GMD)
