Arresto Menor
Hello Sir , I'm the owner of a townhouse last week when the resident was gone I went over there and removed the locks that he had on the place and replace them so that the resident couldn't get back in , I sent the resident an email telling him not to return to the house and that he was not allowed to get any personal things , this week I found out that he was filing a case but I haven't recived any thing yet , can he file a case .

You should consider the following:
Art. 286. Grave coercions. — The penalty of arresto mayor and a fine not exceeding 500 pesos shall be imposed upon any person who, without authority of law, shall, by means of violence, prevent another from doing something not prohibited by law, or compel him to do something against his will, whether it be right or wrong.
If the coercion be committed for the purpose of compelling another to perform any religious act or to prevent him from so doing, the penalty next higher in degree shall be imposed.

Art. 287. Light coercions. — Any person who, by means of violence, shall seize anything belonging to his debtor for the purpose of applying the same to the payment of the debt, shall suffer the penalty of arresto mayor in its minimum period and a fine equivalent to the value of the thing, but in no case less than 75 pesos.
