In a video posted by former Quezon City Rep. Michael Defensor, however, Crisologo said police entered a house in Barangay Bahay Toro without a warrant.

Crisologo noted that the police were not in uniform and that some of them were in slippers.

"We were not read our Miranda rights, nor were we informed of why we were arrested," Crisologo said.
