A WOMAN allegedly hacked a drunk neighbor in Sitio Saac 1, Barangay Buaya, Lapu-Lapu City past midnight yesterday.
According to the police, Cleofe Piamonte, 29, attacked Lito Pedellon, 34, with a 15-inch bolo outside her house at 12:30 a.m.
PO1 Wilson Jose Gonzaga of the Pusok Police Station said Piamonte asked Pedellon, who was making noise, to keep quiet, but he got angry and hit the wooden wall of her house.
After destroying a portion of the wall, Pedellon ripped the roof off the parked trisikad owned by Piamonte and her husband.
Angered, Piamonte took a bolo and struck the victim in the head and other parts of the body. The victim managed to run for help.
Pedellon is being treated at the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center, while Piamonte is detained at the Lapu-Lapu City Police Office.
