ISABELA GOV'S SON SLASHES ROBIN DA ROSA'S FACE

Makati City, March 29, 2003 -- Actor Robin da Rosa's face was disfigured 
after it was hit by a beer bottle allegedly thrown by a son of the governor 
of Isabela inside a restaurant in Makati City the other night.

Police said the 32-year old actor, Roberto Da Rosa in real life, sustained 
cuts that needed at least four to five stitches at the Makati Medical 
Center where he was confined.

The incident occurred at around 4 a.m. inside the Olive Bar and Restaurant 
along Makati Avenue.

According to Enrique Javier, a friend of the actor, Da Rosa was among his 
guests who came to celebrate his birthday.

Javier said he saw Nicoli Dy, said to be the son of Isabela Gov. Benjamin 
Dy, come down from the bar's second floor and without any warning threw a 
beer bottle that hit Da Rosa in the face.

Dy and his party left the premises before police arrived.

According to the restaurant's employes who declined to be identified, the 
two met inside the bar's restroom and a visibly drunken Dy mocked the actor 
for being "too handsome." The actor reportedly did not respond. (Malaya)
