MANILA, Philippines – A couple was arrested after being caught having sex within the premises of Rizal Park Thursday evening.

Fruit vendor Rey Jojo and his live-in partner Maria Teresa Salvador were caught by the park's security guards having sex inside the Chinese Garden at around 10 p.m.

"Bali yung babae nakapatong sa lalaki, nakaupo sila… Kasi yung pantalon ng babae nakababa, pati yung sa lalaki," said security guard Edmar Rapales.

Another security guard, Aristotle Santos, said the couple's rude attitude forced them to bring the matter to the police.

"Hindi naman siguro maganda sa paninigin ng maraming tao na kung ano man ang pagkakasundo nila eh doon nila gagawin sa lugar na hindi nararapat…Binastos niya pa kasi ung bisor namin eh," Santos said.

Salvador admitted to having sex within the park's premises. Jojo, on the other hand, denied the accusation.

Jojo said he and Salvador were only kissing. He said they had just reconciled with each other after fighting for two weeks.

The couple is facing public scandal charges. They could be jailed for six months to a year. – report from Francis Faulve, dzMM
