ANGELES CITY -- An Australian national was recently charged by the city police for robbery, grave slander, and alarms and scandal after he allegedly harassed an American lawyer along the entertainment district of Fields Avenue in Barangay Balibago here.
Police identified the foreigner as Edward John MC Allec, 60, single, Australian, and staying at Diamond Apartelle in the said village.
Chief Inspector Luisito Tan, Police Station 4 chief, said that an American lawyer, Craid Iwao Ihara, 59, aired his charges against Allec before the police station’s complaint center on Tuesday.
Ihara claimed that he was using his mobile phone along Fields Avenue Monday night when Allec, who was apparently drunk, yelled at him saying "you are a fu…g pedophile, fu…g germs, I’ll kick your ass."
After this, the suspect allegedly grabbed the victim’s cellphone which later fell on the ground.
Customers and employees in different establishments were alarmed by the incident, according to Tan.
Apprehending police officers also reportedly received invectives from Allec. The suspect allegedly told the cops "bring your wife here and I’ll f… her for a short time and I will give you P21,000."
Tan said police filed the charges against Allec before the office of Angeles City Prosecutor Allan T. Pasamonte under criminal case number III-INQ-106-00356.
The suspect is still detained at the Police Station 4 as of Thursday. (Reynaldo G. Navales)
