Indie actor Eugene Kiro Tejada is now in jail after a mauling incident last Wednesday night inside a supermarket.
The victim was 44 year-old Frenil Bautista, resident of Batasan Hills in Quezon City. Bautista works as an administrative supervisor at the Beta Equipment Sales Corp.
According to the police, Tejada mauled the victim for leaning on Tejada’s live-in partner, Mary Jana Malilin.
Malilin reacted and accused Bautista of making sexual advances. Tejada then allegedly mauled Bautista inside the supermarket’s comfort room. It was suspected that the victim’s head was bashed.
Bautista was brought to the police station and the San Mateo Police stated that the victim was already covered in blood and had difficulty pronouncing his name when they arrived.
“During the confrontation kay Mr. Frenil, napansin ko, parang ‘di na normal…Hindi na siya makapagsulat,” Senior Police Officer 1 Wilmer Privado said.
As to the accusation that Bautista is guilty of alleged acts of lasciviousness.
“Sa tingin namin, hindi ginawa ni Mr. Frenil na sadyain kasi during that time, nagha-hypertension na siya. May diabetes na siya. Nahihilo na siya, which is clinically, sa mga medical records niya, totoo naman,” the police stated.
After the mauling, the victim went into a coma. A brain surgery was done, however Bautista died after two days.
Bautista’s nephew said that the victim’s skull was badly broken, which could be an evidence of Tejada’s alleged “brutality”.
