Detainee who escaped from QC jail arrestedAn 18-year-old detainee who escaped from Quezon City Jail in December by jumping its perimeter fence was caught on Thursday, after hiding from authorities for nearly a month. The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) arrested PO1 Marcos Laggui, 37, his brother Julian, 30, and their relative Daniel Guillermo, 28, around 3:20 p.m. along Aguho Street in Project 3, Barangay Claro. Guillermo Eleazar, QCPD director, said Ruben Soriano, a barangay public safety officer, saw the three suspects fighting with their neighbor and tried to pacify them. The policeman, however, reportedly pulled out his firearm and aimed it on Soriano, forcing him and the neighbor to hide inside one of the houses. Investigation showed that Laggui then pointed his gun upwards and fired once, before firing it once more when the village watchman again tried to pacify him.—JHESSET O. ENANO
