Twenty-two inmates fled the Bacoor City detainment cell in Barangay Talaba at roughly 4:23 in the afternoon, Friday. As of 6 p.m., three of them were recaptured shortly.
The Bacoor City Police heightened their manhunt operations against 19 other escapees, said Supt. Chitadel Gaoiran, spokesperson of the Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon police.
Primary investigation revealed that the two detainees subjugated the jail guard on duty, who was about to open the steel gate of the detention cell motivating the other inmates to escape.
Bacoor police are now administering checkpoints in all plausible exits to chase down the escapees.
