Video clips obtained by News5 showed a father inflicting violence on his three children in Barangay Batomelong, General Santos City.
Ironically, it was the father himself who shot the video clips, which depicted him dishing out punishment on the kids in abusively.
One sequence seemed to show the three-year old crying and suspended by his neck.
In another sequence, the six-year old boy is shown frantically trying to flee while being punished, but is chased just the same and hit repeatedly.
The two girls were turned over by Region 12 Police Office Station 8 to the Department of Social Welfare and Development after undergoing medical examination, while the boy was taken in by his uncle.
The suspect, identified as Jeffrey Udasan y Kabalo, eluded the arrest.
The children’s mother, who is working in Kuwait, has been duly informed about the incident.
