1 hurt as armed men harass police patrol base

by Noel B. Najarro

Butuan City (14 September) -- A police personnel was hurt when armed men believed to be New Peoples Army rebels harassed a remote police patrol base, Saturday evening.

Reports reaching regional police headquarters from Agusan del Sur police stated that a patrol base belonging to the 13th Regional Public Safety Regional Battalion (13th RPSB) located at Sitio Maitum, Brgy. Langkilaan, Trento, Agusan del Sur; was harassed by more or less 10 armed persons believed to be NPA rebels, 9:11 P.M. Saturday.

The raiders were accordingly armed with high powered firearms, led by an unidentified commander. The ensuing firefight, police reports said, lasted for more or less ten minutes. The armed marauders were forced to withdraw to some unknown direction, when the government troopers held fast their ground and defended their post.

After the firefight however, it was discovered that one from the government forces identified as Police Officer 1 Charlon M. Montero was slightly hit at the right side of his head and at his lips. He, however, was already given immediate medical attention.

A team from the patrol base was sent at 7:00 A.M. yesterday, 200 meters where the enemy was believed to have their position the night before. The police team recovered 7 spent shells of Caliber.30 and 16 spent shells of Caliber 5.36.

The government troopers are now conducting hot pursuit operations on the fleeing rebels. (Butuan Star/PIA-Caraga) [top]
