1 violent brother on Mon Feb 18, 2013 11:23 am

Arresto Menor
Hi! I would like to know if I can press charges against my brother. Last Saturday night, my brother and I got into a disagreement. He is known for his hot temper. Before, there was an occurrence of him punching my other brother, punching our house and everything in it (our ref got destroyed because of it and the doors got ruined), and an occurrence of him hitting my father with a chair that resulted to his forearm bone getting broken and needed a cast. But this was my first time that he hit me. He hit me multiple times in my head. I only sustained a small cut in my eye brow since most of his punches hit the side of my head and my father tried to fight him off me. The day after that (yesterday), I had extreme headache and pain in my neck, but there were really no visible injuries except for the one in my eye brow. I did not go to the hospital or police because my father asked me not to so as not to make the problem bigger. But I believe that this will continue if we do not do anything and just allow him to do this to us. I do not know if I have the rights to press charges with this especially if I don't have a medical certificate and I do not have much visible injuries to prove it.

Go to a public hospital and ask for a medico-legal report then go to PNP or NBI to file a case.
