LEGAZPI CITY, Albay – The party-list congressman caught in a video punching a waiter in a fast food joint here faced a torrent of criticism from netizens.
Viral photos of police blotter and security camera footage of Ang Probinsyano Rep. Alfred Delos Santos drew angry reactions on social media.
Delos Santos was identified in the blotter which was obtained by Manila Bulletin. It also identified the waiter as Christian Kent Alejo y Ecleo, 20.
In an excerpt from Police Blotter of Police Community Precinct (PCP) -2, dated July 7, recorded by Sr. Sgt. Gerald Bautista, Alejo narrated at around 3:40 a.m. last Sunday while he working at Biggs Diner, a customer whom he identified as Delos Santos punched him without any provocation. Alejo said he avoided the punch.
Manila Bulletin contacted Alejo’s family for an interview but was told they would release any statement because they have decided to sue Delos Santos.
The paper also tried to get the side of Delos Santos but no to avail.
Bartolome Rayco, the lawyer of Alejo said the victim is firm in filing a case.
“Nung pumunta sa akin ang pamilya, desidido talaga yung pamilya na magsampa ng kaso,” Rayco said.
He said they will file a criminal case of slight physical injury or maltreatment, and an administrative case of grave misconduct or simple misconduct.
