Customs director Ike Peredo, an appointee of Guam's first female governor, assaulted a female Customs officer, according to other customs officers, who witnessed the altercation.
Kandit has asked Guam Police Department spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao whether Mr. Peredo has been arrested. He said he is looking into the matter.
