Actor Matt Evans was arrested at his home in Sampaloc, Manila last Friday, July 31 for alleged physical violence charges.
According to the Manila Police District report, Evans violated Republic Act 9262 or Anti- Violence Against Women and their Children Act of 2004.
However, in a report from PEP.ph, the arrest was in connection with a “child support” case filed by his former live-in partner Johnelline Hickins, with whom the actor has a daughter.
The recent warrant of arrest for the actor was issued by Presiding Judge Carmencita Lacandazo Logan of the Pasig Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 12.
The report indicated that the bail recommended for temporary liberty in the Evans case is fixed at Php 36,000.
Evans was first arrested in 2012 for allegedly hurting his then-partner, Hickins.
In 2018, Matt married businesswoman Riza Katrina Evans, who was arrested for estafa in 2019.
