9 Minors Playing Games in Computer Shop Amid Curfew Hours Nabbed
Local authorities arrested allegedly caught 9 minors playing online games inside a computer shop amid curfew hours in Parañaque last night.
While playing computer games at a business in Paranaque, nine teenagers were found breaking the curfew. When patrolling guards went by a computer business in Barangay San Dionisio, Paranaque, they assumed it was closed owing to the curfew.
However, around 11 a.m., police arrested nine teenagers for playing computer games on the premises. The arrested individuals ranged in age from 18 to 22 years old. The minor store attendant was also brought to the Barangay hall.
The guards roam around the area at Tramo 1 at 9 p.m., according to Tiny Ocier, team leader of the guards, and spotted no one in the shop. Due to the curfew, the owner of the computer business insisted on closing it at 6 p.m., but the caretaker did not immediately return the key to him.
The teenagers said that the store attendant asked them to play Crossfire, a first-person shooting game, in the shop. They were halted by the cops less than 30 minutes into the game.
They claim that this is the first time they have been apprehended due to the curfew. The next morning, one of them had an online lesson. Due to his age, the shop attendant was sent home, but the others spent the night in the barangay.
For breaking the curfew, they were each fined P200. The Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine imposes a curfew in Metro Manila from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. (MECQ).
