QC cop nabbed for firing gun at Pangasinan resort
DAGUPAN CITY – A Quezon City policeman was arrested for allegedly discharging his weapon, and for attempting to enter the room of a beach resort owner’s daughter, on Tuesday afternoon (Mar. 7) at San Fabian town in Pangasinan province.
SPO3 Juan Solares, 40, who is assigned to Station 1 in La Loma village, reportedly fired his gun near the bedroom of a 13-year-old girl.
Concerned that an armed man was standing near her door as she returned from school, the girl greeted him, “Good evening po.”
Solares cocked his gun and fired upwards, prompting the girl to rush inside her room, locking the door behind her.
The girl said the man tried to force his way through the door, so she shouted for help at the window. The girl’s driver heard the gunshot and rushed to confront the policemen.
The driver informed Solares that the girl inside was the resort owner’s daughter and that he had no business being there. Solares was eventually calmed down by a friend of the resort owner.
Solares and his girlfriend were guests at the resort. He told the arresting police officers he was drunk at the time. /lb
