By Jennifer P. Rendon

A 21-year-old was arrested for allegedly poking a gun at a minor afternoon of Nov. 24 in Sara, Iloilo.

Francis Joey Arceo, 21, of Barangay Ardemil, Sara, was placed under citizen’s arrest after the incident.

According to reports, the suspect waylaid 17-year-old Ron-Ron (not his real name) and poked a 12-gauge homemade shotgun at him.

Arceo told the victim, “Nga-a wala ka ga pamugno, mig (Why are you not talking to me)?”

When the victim saw the gun, he immediately scampered and asked for help from a group of barangay tanods.

Barangay tanod Reymart Bacusa responded and placed the suspect under citizen’s arrest.

Police were later called in to jail Arceo.

Arceo is now detained and will face cases for threat, violation of violation of Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Resolution No. 10728 and Republic Act 10591 (Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act).
