ILOILO City — A 25-year-old man was arrested yesterday for allegedly masturbating inside an Internet café on Luna St., La Paz district.

Members of the city’s Task Force on Internet Gaming and Pornography collared Eduard Dela Cruz of Brgy. San Nicolas, La Paz, and took him to the La Paz police station.

Police said the task force personnel claimed that they were inspecting the Jacel Internet Café at about 2:41 a.m. when they caught Dela Cruz viewing a pornographic video with his hand inside his short pants.

Suspecting that Dela Cruz was masturbating, they immediately took him and brought him to the police station.

They also reprimanded the owner of the Internet café for allowing the viewing of pornographic videos and pictures.

Dela Cruz was detained in the La Paz police station lockup cell.

Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog had created the task force to monitor activities in Internet stations in the city.

Chaired by Ben Palma, the task force is also tasked to curb the proliferation of video piracy and pornography in Internet cafés, gaming centers and business stalls.

It is now busy inspecting if there are minors playing games in the said establishments during class hours and late in the evening.

Under City Ordinance No. 2006–020, minors are prohibited from roaming around the city from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Violators will be apprehended and their parents will be summoned./PN
