The suspect is out on bail after reportedly posting a P200,000 bail.
JDN Sons Inc. president Arnie Valdes said they recognized the effort of the security personnel.
The security personnel coordinated with elements of the Police Station 1 of the Angeles City Police Office (ACPO), led by Senior Inspector Darwin Barbosa, who then went to the area.
