CEBU - The Cebu Provincial Police Office is currently investigating four cops who allegedly beat up a person who was placed under arrest in Moalboal Police Station.

PO3 Niño Ferolino, PO3 Ramon Chenil, PO2 Stewart Bayang, and PO1 Ronil Quinain were summoned by the Provincial Investigation and Detective Management Bureau to explain their sides.

Complainant Renante Bani accused the four police officers of mauling him inside Basdiot Elementary School last July 21.

Bani was placed under arrest for malicious mischief. He is charged with direct assault and malicious mischief for breaking his ex-girlfriend’s phone.

The cops said Bani resisted arrest and was unruly so they had to pacify him. PO1 Quinain said he was injured during the incident.

Bani, who attended the case conference, did not agree on a settlement.
