It was on June 15 when Sanvicente surrendered to the authorities and apologized for ramming security guard Christian Floralde at the intersection of Julia Vargas and St. Francis Street in Mandaluyong City last week. Apparently, the police did not arrest him.

Sanvicente was accompanied by his parents and lawyer when he appeared before a press briefing at Camp Crame in Quezon City on Wednesday afternoon.

While the investigation is ongoing, the incident continues to make headlines.

In fact, an article published by Abogado.com.ph stated that Sanvicente’s father had been tagged in the killing of a Filipino-Chinese businessman.

Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption president Arsenio “Boy” Evangelista told the site that the elder Sanvicente had been accused of the killing of a businessman a few years ago in front of an ATM at Far East Bank and Trust Company Branch in Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City.

Based on the record of the Supreme Court, the bullets found in the victim’s body matched the slugs and shells of the caliber.45 he allegedly used to slay the businessman.

According to Evangelista, the father of the hit-and-run suspect who recently appeared in the media was the same man who took the life of a businessman named Dennis C. Wong in 1995.

The court’s decision in the case of the elder Sanvicente became controversial due to a lack of evidence to prove that he actually killed the businessman.

The case reached the Court of Appeals and identified Sanvicente as the assailant of Wong. But the course of his case changed when it reached the Supreme Court where the elder Sanvicente was acquitted.

The decision was written by Associate Justice Consuelo Ynares-Santiago.
