MANILA (UPDATE)—Actor Kit Thompson has been released from detention after posting bail for charges related to the alleged physical abuse and illegal detention suffered by his girlfriend Ana Jalandoni, a police official confirmed Monday.

Tagaytay chief of police Police Lt. Col. Rolando Baula told ABS-CBN News that Thompson was released at about 5 p.m.

The actor was arrested in Tagaytay City last Friday, March 18, after local police received reports that he allegedly assaulted Jalandoni inside a hotel room.

The following day, the Philippine National Police filed a complaint against Thompson for violation of Section 5 (a) of the Republic Act 9262 or the Anti-Violence against Women and Children Act.

He has undergone inquest proceedings at the Tagaytay City Prosecutor’s Office, the PNP said.

According to Jalandoni’s lawyer, the actress is “determined” to sue Thompson over the incident that left her with injuries, including one that has “severely affected” her eyesight.
