Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 22) — Actor Kit Thompson was released on bail on Monday afternoon after being detained for allegedly beating his girlfriend, the Tagaytay City police confirmed on Tuesday.

Tagaytay City Chief of Police PLtCol Rolando Baula told CNN Philippines in a phone interview that the actor posted a bail of ₱72,000.

Thompson was arrested on March 18 after local police received a report he was allegedly detaining and mauling his girlfriend, showbiz newcomer Ana Jalandoni, in a hotel.

The Philippine National Police filed a complaint against him the next day for violation of Section 5(a) of Republic Act No. 9262 or the Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children Act.

Jalandoni has shared photos of her bruised face, adding she will release an official statement.

Thompson and Jalandoni confirmed their relationship last December.
