Mayor Jalosjos assures steps being taken to maintain peace and order after Dapitan park mauling incident

Dapitan City Mayor Seth Frederick “Bullet” P. Jalosjos has assured the public that the local government is taking measures to maintain peace and order in the city.

He made the statement following a recent mauling incident at the new Children’s Park in Barangay Bagting.

The incident involved a young resident of Barangay Potol who was allegedly attacked by a man from Purok Maasin, Barangay Talisay.

Quoting the victim, whose name was withheld, the city government said he was punched in the head while walking around the unlit seawall of the park with his two friends.

Fortunately, authorities patrolling the area responded to the incident.

The suspect, who went into hiding, voluntarily turned himself to Barangay Talisay Captain Marilyn Frankera on Tuesday, February 27.

“Investigations are underway, and swift actions are being undertaken by the proper authorities,” the city government said.
