A MAN survived an attack by his brother-in-law in Sitio Danawan, Barangay Poblacion in the northern town of Daanbantayan, Cebu on Wednesday night, August 31, 2022.

The victim was identified as 54-year-old Sergio Coyoca Nogra Jr., a resident of the sitio.

Nogra suffered a hack wound at the back of the head and a deep cut in the right arm.

Police later arrested Rodito Doble Tumakay, a 52-year-old widower who also resides in the sitio.

They said the suspect was drunk.

Patrolman Zosimo Ducante Jr. of the Daanbantayan Police Station told Superbalita Cebu the two men had a long-standing feud.

According to initial investigation, Nogra confronted Tumakay for allegedly pelting stones at his house.

The victim then proceeded to beat the suspect with a pipe, but the latter retaliated by hacking him with a machete.

Nogra was rushed to the Daanbantayan District Hospital where he received treatment for his wounds. (GPL/PJB)
