Internet personality Xander Ford was arrested the other week for allegedly assaulting his erstwhile girlfriend.
The suspect (Marlou Arizala in real life) is charged with violating R.A. 9262, the Violence Against Women and their Children Act.
Complainant Ysah Cabrejas alleged she was subjected to physical abuse and sexual assault by the suspect during a heated argument.
Ford is being detained by the Manila police based on an arrest warrant issued by the Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 18. Bail was set at P18,000.
Ford reportedly denied any wrongdoing, and said he hoped for a chance talk to the petitioner to clear the air.
