DAVAO - A security guard at a bar in Davao City got a beating Monday evening after hitting one of the customers inside the bar. 

Security guard Jack Villesca first tried to hook up a foreigner with one of the bar customers, identified as Maria Alegre alias 'Rhea'. 

Alegre refused to hang out with the foreigner, which angered Villesca.

"The security guard wanted to introduce the American to Rhea. However, Rhea refused to and gave the guard a dirty finger instead, which angered him," Jessahara Kathe, Alegre's friend, explained. 

Villesca then punched Alegre's companion, identified as Elorde Batirez, before trying to run away. 

Batirez, however, threw a bottle at Villesca's head before several men attacked the guard.

Villesca is currently detained at San Pedro police station. He is set to face a complaint filed by Batirez and Alegre.
