Nine youths were caught violating the curfew while playing computer games at a shop in Parañaque Sunday night.
A computer shop in Barangay San Dionisio, Parañaque, was thought to be closed due to the curfew when patrolling guards passed by.
But around 11 a.m., police arrested 9 youths for playing computer games there.
The arrested 7 men and one woman were aged 18 to 22. In addition, the minor shop manager was also brought to the barangay.
According to Tiny Ocier, team leader of the guards, they circled the area at Tramo 1 around 9 pm and saw no one in the shop.
The computer shop owner also insisted that he closed it at 6 o’clock due to the curfew, but the caretaker did not immediately return the key to him.
The teens said the caretaker invited them to play in the shop of the first-person shooting game Crossfire.
Less than 30 minutes into the game, they were stopped by the police.
According to them, this is the first time they have been caught because of the curfew. One of them had an online class the next morning.
The shop manager was sent home due to his age, but the others spent the night in the barangay.
They were fined P200 each for violating the curfew.
