A MAN playing mahjong was stabbed by his neighbor around 6 p.m. Sunday at Sitio Tinabangay Alaska, Barangay Mambaling, Cebu City.
Police identified the victim as Jerome Baya Gador, 34, single and a resident of Sitio Tinabangay Alaska. The suspect was Mario Maybanting Jr., alias Bonjong, 26, single and a neighbor of Gador.
Initial investigation revealed that the victim was playing mahjong with his neighbors Elisa Apurado, Tersie Toleroso and a certain Michael when Bonjong arrived and stabbed Gador several times using a kitchen knife.
Bonjong said to Gador: “Patyon tika! (I will kill you!)”
Gador tried to parry the knife but still, he was hit and wounded on his right hand, while his playmates, who were shocked at that time, were not able to help him.
Gador was brought to the Cebu City Medical Center and was advised to go home after the treatment.
The Cebu City Police Office is now conducting hot pursuit operation against the suspect, who fled after the incident.
Gador said he is willing to file a case against Bonjong. (Jerson B. Rufin, PIT intern/Sunnex)
