Preliminary Investigation
Issuance of Warrant of Arrest
Warrantless Arrest
o A reasonable ground of suspicion supported by
circumstances sufficiently strong in themselves to warrant a
cautious mans belief that the person accused is guilty of the
offense with which he is charged. Specifically with respect to
arrests it is such facts and circumstances which would lead a
reasonably discreet and prudent man to believe that an
offense has been committed by the person sought to be
arrested People v. Chua Ho San 308 SCRA 432
o Par B
Hot Pursuit
2 Conditions that must concur:
A Crime was committed by the arrestee
Arrestor has probable cause based on personal knowledge of facts
or circumstance
There must be a large measure of immediacy between the time the
offense was committed and the time of the arrest, and if there was a
an appreciable lapse of time between the arrest and the commission of
the crime, a warrant of arrest must be secured (People v. Del Rosario)
It is not enough that there is reasonable ground to believe that a
person to be arrested has committed a crime. A crime must in fact or
actually have been committed first. That a crime has actually, been
committed is an essential precondition. Where a search first
undertaken, then an arrest affected based on evidence produced by
the search, both search and arrest would be unlawful, for being
contrary to law (People v. Cuizon)
