Knife-wielding man arrested

The suspect, after seeing uniformed police, yielded to the command and peacefully followed their instructions until he was arrested and handcuffed.

A patrolling cop from the Manila Police District Police Station 1 prevented a brawl that could have possibly led to a stabbing after he arrested one of the two men involved in the fight, who was holding a bladed weapon, on Saturday evening in Tondo, Manila.

MPD Chief P/Brig. Gen Andrei Dizon identified the suspect as Alvin Flores, a resident of Barangay 112 in Tondo, Manila.

Initial reports disclosed that while cops were making a night patrol aboard their motorcycle, they chanced upon a commotion wherein two individuals were brawling. One of the men ran and the other, who was armed with a bladed weapon, chased his opponent.

This caught the attention of the police, who also gave chase to the suspect in possession of a knife. After cornering him, they ordered him to drop his weapon and lie down on the ground.

The suspect, after seeing uniformed police, yielded to the command and peacefully followed their instructions until he was arrested and handcuffed.

Seized from the suspect was one sharpened screwdriver with a length of more or less 12 inches, including the handle.

The suspect is currently detained at the MPD-PS1 station and will face charges for violation Article 282 of the Revised Penal Code or Grave Threat, Alarm and Scandal, Illegal Possession of Deadly Weapon and violation of the Omnibus Election Code at the Manila City Prosecutors Office.
