Edwin Girimbao and Roselyn Garcia who are 26 and 25 years old are now facing charges of physical injury and direct assault after attacking a Metro Manila Development Authority traffic constable Geraldo Santiago with a helmet and assaulting a photographer of a newspaper agency.

The MMDA traffic constable stopped the two, reported to be live-in partner, while riding a motorcycle for not wearing prescribed attires. The two were wearing slippers and shorts which are against the dress code for motorcycle riders.

Instead of accepting the violation ticket the two went uncontrollable. The traffic constable and news photographer received kicks and assault using helmet.

Girimbao and Garcia are now detained at Quezon City Police District Station 12.
