POLICE detained two Chinese — a man and his son — for allegedly trying to make spa workers stimulate their genitals and for punching the spa manager on JR Borja St. here on Monday night.
City police spokesman Maj. Evan Viñas yesterday said charges were being prepared against Samuel Yeong, 67, and his son Kenneth, 36, of Barangay Kauswagan.
Police said the two foreigners were apparently drunk when they went inside the spa at around 10:30 pm.
Viñas said witnesses claimed that the father and son, who speak little English and Bisaya, were unruly inside the spa.
Police said the suspects grabbed the spa workers’ hands and tried to force them into stimulating their members with their hands.
The women ran off and reported the incident to the manager.
Police said the Chinese punched subsequently punched the spa manager just as they were about to pay the bill.
Viñas said the spa workers were keen on pressing charges against the foreigners.
He said charges of grave coercion in relation to sexual assault and physical injuries for punching the spa manager were being prepared against the foreigners.
Viñas said said the Chinese also failed to present their passports and visas. But the elder Yeong had a driver’s license issued by the Land Transportation Office.
Viñas said until the suspects present documents, they would be considered illegal aliens.
“We are now checking their status at the Bureau of Immigration,” he said.
If they came to the country without visas or work permits, Vinas said, the two Chinese would be slapped with more charges.
As of this writing, the Yeongs are still detained at the Cogon police precinct.
