Tension arose between authorities and residents, with some throwing rocks and glass bottles.

Eric Agulay, a crew member from broadcast station TV5, sustained an injury on his hand after being hit by a shard of glass.

Resident Errol Santillan, on the other hand, accused Sales of punching him after he tried to go back to his house.
