Father holds daughter hostage in Pasay
Sunday, March 11, 2012
MANILA -- A hostage drama in Pasay City ended peacefully after responding policemen managed to "overpower" the suspect after he dozed off during the nearly three-hour stand-off.
Suspect Carlos Suarez grabbed his one-year-old daughter after he engaged his live-in-partner, Renalyn, in a heated argument after he arrived home at 955 Higgins Street, St. Andrew, Barangay Maricaban around 9 a.m. Sunday.
Fearing that he might hurt her, Renalyn sought the help of barangay officials but they were kept at bay by the suspect who immediately brandished a samurai (sword) and grabbed his daughter while threatening to harm her if they entered their residence.
Personnel from the Pasay Police Special Weapons and Tactics (Swat) immediately responded to the scene and cordoned off the area while negotiation with the suspect to surrender and release his daughter started.
Chief Inspector Joey Goforth, chief of the Pasay police Station Investigation and Detective Management Section, said the stand-off only ended around 12:25 p.m. after the Swat team took advantage when its members saw the hostage-taker fell asleep.
The suspect fell asleep because he was intoxicated, Goforth said. The Swat team entered the house through its window and safely recovered the child and handcuffed the suspect.
No one was hurt during the standoff but authorities brought the suspect's daughter to a hospital for medical examination.
Suarez was taken to the police station to face the necessary charges.
The suspect's live-in partner said Suarez was despondent after losing his job as a barangay driver. (AH/Sunnex)
