A Japanese man is now behind bars after he attempted to take possession of a policeman’s gun while she was onboard a motorcycle in Tondo, Manila.

25-year-old Yuhei Chiba, of Long Wood Garden Hotel in Pasay City, is now in custody of the Manila Police District.


Chiba attempted to wrestle the gun away from 24-year-old Anael Dawangan at 8.45am on North Zamora, near Moriones, Tondo.

Dawangan said the Japanese man did not succeed in taking her gun as he did not know how to unlock the holster.

Police say the suspect came from behind the officer and seemed disturbed at the time of the incident. Dawangan is said to have been with another police officer at the time.
At the police station, Chiba told police that he wanted to commit suicide due to his personal problems. He is now facing additional problems and is facing charges of assault of a person with authority.
