‘No. 6 most wanted' man
nabbed for murder raps
A teenager, tagged by the police as the number 6 most-wanted person in Bacolod City, was nabbed by Station 4 policemen, at Mazo-Mayon streets in Brgy. Villamonte in the city, at about 12:10 p.m. yesterday.
Jerome Parreñas of Sierra Madre Street in Brgy. Villamonte was apprehended on the strength of a warrant of arrest for murder charges, issued by Regional Trial Court, Branch 49 Judge Manuel Cardinal August last year, Senior Police Officer 2 Rommel Parcon, Station 4 chief investigator said yesterday.
With the arrest warrant, a team from the Warrant and Subpoena Section of Station 4 swooped down on the house where Parreñas was reportedly hiding, Parcon said.
Cardinal did not recommend bail for Parreñas, who was presented to the court several hours after his arrest, the police said.
Reports said that Parreñas and his cousin, whose name was not disclosed, and who is still at large, are the suspects in the fatal stabbing of James Villalobos, 21, of Brgy. Villamonte on April 19, 2013.
Parreñas said yesterday that they were only defending themselves against the group of Villalobos, who were the first to hit them with beer bottles in front of a hotel at Lopez–Jaena streets in Bacolod.
He said he regretted what he did and entrusts to God whatever happens to him.
Meanwhile, operatives of Station 6 and Regional Intelligence Unit-6 served a warrant of arrest for rape charges to an elderly man confined at the Bacolod Adventist Medical Center in Brgy. Taculing, Bacolod, at about 11:30 a.m. Thursday.
Robert Truly, 62, was served the warrant issued by Judge Anita Guanzon-Chua, of RTC, Branch 51, who denied him bail, police records show.*SGG
