The 82 year old said that he managed to close the door and escaped. He then went to his home, from where he called police.

The 23 year old was arrested on Wednesday night. He denies any involvement in the case.

According to philenews, the 23 year old’s mother was a Koilani community council secretary but was suspended around a month ago.
