A 22-YEAR-OLD man stabbed the boyfriend of his former girlfriend at A. Lopez St., Sitio Cogon, Barangay Labangon, Cebu City, Sunday evening.
Police identified the victim as Jobert Saldivar, a resident of Barangay Pahina Central and boyfriend of Madeline Ruelo. The suspect was identified as Niño Quijano, a resident of Sitio Cogon, Labangon.
Police said that Saldivar went to Sitio Cogon to visit Ruelo, but he was attacked and stabbed by Quijano just outside his girlfriend’s house.
Saldivar struggled to free himself from Quijano until Judith Ruelo, the mother of Madeline, intervened and stopped the suspect, who then ran away.
Saldivar was rushed to the Cebu City Medical Center for immediate treatment due to a stab wound on his right shoulder and injuries on his head.
Madeline revealed that Quijano has been stalking her since they broke up.
Police are still conducting a hot pursuit operation against Quijano. (Jerson B. Rufin and Akimie R. Losorata, PIT interns/Sunnex)
