Gunmen seized a fishpond owner in the presence of his girlfriend and family members at his residence in Purok 3, Barangay Nazareth, Kabasalan Municipality last Sunday night.

Chief Insp. Helen Galvez, Police Regional Office 9 Information Officer,  identified the victim as Alejandro “Alex” Calunod Bation, 58 years old, married, a Kabasalan-based businessman.

Prior to the incident, Bation was watching a television show with his two sons Albert and Jessie Roy and fishpond helper Elizar Mamuag Dumadag in the living room while the victim’s girlfriend Cerly Honghong was taking dinner in the kitchen.

Suddenly, six armed men wearing military and police uniforms arrived and dragged the businessman out of the house.

The men then took the victim to a mini wharf in the barangay where the group boarded three motorized pump boats.

Police conducted hot pursuit operations to recover the victim. (Dan Toribio)
