Two detainees who escaped from a detention cell in Tampilisan Municipality were recovered by authorities last Sunday.

The two were identified as Alfin Moreno Omar and Willboy Galon Pedi.

Pedi was recovered by authorities at Barangay Situbo, Tampilisan at around 7 a.m.

The other detainee, Omar, was recovered by authorities in the same Barangay.

Omar, however, reportedly resisted and attacked a barangay tanod who was part of the arresting team.

The detainee was hit at the back portion of  the body and was rushed to a local hospital where he received medical treatment.

The two were later brought to the Tampilisan Municipal Police Station detention cell for proper disposition.

The two were recovered by a team composed of the Tampilisan Municipal Police Station, 13th Special Force Company and barangay officials and tanods of Barangays Situbo, Tiningaan, Cabong and Sandayong.

Meanwhile, a policeman was shot during the recovery of an escapee of the Ramon Magsaysay district jail in  Zamboanga del Sur last Saturday.

When the escapee, identified as Danilo Dumandos, noticed the presence of lawmen, he fired a shot towards the latter, hitting one.

Police fired back and later arrested Dumandos.

Another escapee, identified as Nestor Dumandos eluded arrest.

Danilo was turned over to the Ramon Magsaysay district jail. (Remus Ong)
