Laguna police nab escaped detainee after a chase

Jun 14, 2022 @ 9:27

The Laguna police have re-arrested a prisoner who escaped from the Laguna Provincial Jail in May this year.

The detainee was identified as Eddie Bongon, who was jailed in connection with a drug charge and who is also facing cases for attempted homicide and robbery.

Bongon had escaped from the Laguna Provincial Jail by climbing a tree and jumping over a wall.

The Laguna Provincial Jail subsequently received a tip that he was set to visit a relative in Pila.

But as operatives were about to nab him, he jumped on a motorcycle to escape toward Victoria.

He was shot by a prison guard but he still managed to flee.

The police alerted other authorities and a hot pursuit and dragnet operation were conducted.

Bongon was caught along the national highway in Calauan on June 12.

He was brought to a hospital for the treatment of his gunshot wound on the back before his transfer to the Laguna provincial jail.
