A man was arrested for accusing a policewoman of being a thief during a raid on illegal hawkers along P. Lorenzo Street last Monday.

Basil Sarail y Andam, 35 years old, a cellphone vendor was arrested by police.

Operatives of the City Hall Compac were implementing a City Hall ordinance against sidewalk vendors and were confiscating cell phones displayed along the sidewalk when the incident occurred.

A female operative confiscated an Acer Liquid XI with SNID number 45100081175 reportedly belonging to Sarail when the latter suddenly shouted, “ Pulis ka Ma’m.  Magnanakaw ka.”

Sarail was immediately arrested and brought to the Central Police Station and is presently facing charges of “Disobedience to a Person in Authority.”  (Dan Toribio)
