A mentally deranged man was charged for direct assault after reportedly attacking a policeman in Barangay Culianan, this city last Sunday.

The subject was identified as 29-year-old Norman Comedoy y Book.

A Police Regional Office-9 report stated that SPO3 Raul Galvez spotted Comedoy attacking a certain Rey Patrick Lacno in Zone 6, Mendoza Drive last Sunday afteroon.

Galvez, who introduced himself as a lawman, tried to pacify the two.

Instead of stopping, Galvez turned his ire on the policeman and started attacking the latter.

Galvez drew out his gun in an attempt to warn Comedoy.

Comedoy, however, continued to attack Galvez and even tried to grab the gun from the latter’s hold.

The firearm went off, hitting Comedoy in the left arm.

The suspect was taken to the hospital while Galvez also sustained injuries as a result of the scuffle.

Comedoy will be charged with direct assault to a person in authority.  (Dan Toribio)
