A 30-YEAR-OLD masseur who was accused of theft by his male Korean customer was arrested by police in Panglao town in Bohol.

Staff Sergeant Aldrin Cuervo of Panglao Police Station said Korean national Hyeong Seok Choi, of legal age, went to their station to ask help after his wallet containing P44,000 cash disappeared while he was having a massage inside a room.

The suspect identified as Alay Daplin, however, admitted to the crime during police interrogation and promised to return the money on a staggered basis.

The police are now waiting for the victim to decide on whether or not he would file charges against the masseur. (BBT, TPT)
