·1 min read

A TRICYCLE driver was stabbed after pacifying the trouble between the two lovers in Sitio Paglaum, Barangay Dumlog, Talisay City, Cebu on Tuesday evening, July 12, 2022.

Corporal Eleazar Belciña, investigating officer of Talisay City Police Station, identified the victim as Joven Janon, a tricycle driver from the said sitio.

Belciña said that prior to the incident, the suspect identified as Rostam Lindayao, a hollow block maker, and his girlfriend Leny Ann had an argument around 6 p.m. on Tuesday that resulted to Lindayao punching his girlfriend.

Janon, who was drunk at that time, confronted Lindayao after learning about the incident.

However, Lindayao pulled out an icepick, while his fellow hollow block maker Jomare Paloma had a kitchen knife prompting Janon to run for his life.

The suspects were able to catch Janon after a brief chase and took turns in stabbing the victim.

Belciña said Janon had multiple lacerations on the head and different parts of his body, but the wounds were not deep as he was able to parry the attacks.

Both the victim, Leny Ann and the suspects are neighbors in Sitio Paglaum.

The suspects surrendered to the police station after the incident.

"Matod sa mga suspetsado nga gisulong daw sila sa biktima mao nga ilang giaksyonan ug dunggab pero nasagang ra sa biktima," Belciña said.

(The suspects claimed that the victim confronted them that's why they threatened to stab him but he parried the attacks).

Janon said he is determined to file a case against the suspects, while Leny Ann would file a case against Lindayao for physical injury.

The police recovered the kitchen knife that Paloma used in the crime. (GDC, TPT)
