CAMP OLIVAS, City of San Fernando, Pampanga — Police on Thursday arrested the prime suspect in the killing of a Pakistani national last May in Dinalupihan, Bataan.

Nabbed was Angelo Perez, 30, of Purok 1, Bgy. Bangal, Dinalupihan, Bataan.

In a report to Police Regional Office 3 director Brig. Gen. Jose Hidalgo Jr., Bataan police chief Col. Palmer Tria said operatives of the Bataan Provincial Intelligence Unit led by Lt. Alexander Aurelio, together with the Mariveles police and Bataan 2nd Provincial Mobile Force Company conducted a police operation at Sitio Judea Bgy. Mt. View, Mariveles, Bataan which led to the arrest of Perez.

Perez was arrested based on a warrant of arrest issued by the San Fernando City, Pampanga Regional Trial Court for frustrated murder.

Seized from the suspect were a hand grenade, one cal. .45 pistol loaded with six live bullets, a cal. .45 magazine with eight live bullets, 10 live bullets for cal. .45 pistol, 24 live bullets for cal. .38 gun, and four sachets of shabu.

Perez was the prime suspect in the fatal shooting of Imran Akhtar, a 44-year-old businessman from Pakistan on May 23 at a private resort in Dinalupihan.

“The arrest of Perez sheds light on the long-pending case as the motive behind the killing is yet to be determined and investigation continues in order to identify any potential accomplices involved in the crime. We also encourage anyone with relevant information to come forward and help give justice to the victim and his family,” Hidalgo said.
