Employer allegedly attacks employee with metal bicycle pump, golf club


A man suffered multiple injuries after his employer allegedly punched and struck him with a metal bicycle pump and a golf club at his apartment unit in As Matuis last July 8.

Boyang Lin suffered a cut on the forehead and cuts and scratches on the elbows. His mouth was bleeding and his chest had several red marks, according to a responding police officer.

Bo Ren, 33, was served with an arrest warrant in As Matuis on Monday afternoon for assault with dangerous weapon, assault and battery, and disturbing the peace.

Ren was taken before the Superior Court yesterday for bail hearing. A $10,000 cash bail was initially imposed for his temporary release.

Police Detective Catherine B. Pangelinan stated in his report that a police officer was dispatched last July 8 at 2:38am to the parking lot of Pretty Tour Company in Garapan, where he met with the bloodied victim, Lin.

Pangelinan said Lin reported that his boss, Ren, attacked him with a golf club at Camille’s Apartment in As Matuis.

Pangelinan said during her interview, Lin alleged that he has been working for Ren over a year now as a house staff located at Camille’s Apartment.

Lin said he was sleeping last July 8 inside his apartment unit when Ren walked into his room and started yelling at him for not changing the dirty bed sheet.

Ren allegedly took a metal bicycle pump and hit Lin’s forehead and the top of his head. He also allegedly grabbed Lin and punched him several times on the chest.

Ren’s girlfriend came and stopped him from assaulting Lin. Ren asked Lin to step outside by the pool area, where they would cool down and talk.

At the pool area, Ren, however, allegedly continued shouting at Lin and hit his back with a golf club. Ren’s girlfriend managed to stop the defendant from further attacking Lin.
