POLICE arrested a man who killed another and wounded three others in a stabbing incident at Tibus Compound, in Barangay San Antonio in Agdao, Davao City early Saturday.
The suspect was identified as Miko Alberio Bullos, 21, single and a resident of Puting Lupa, also in San Antonio.
The slain victim was identified as Ralph John Cabrales Alontaga, a 27-year-old helper while those injured were Gary Roy Morales Tibus, a 29-year old helper, Alma Pacio Navarro, 48 and Ronel Pacio Navarro, 22.
Based on the initial investigation conducted by Sta. Ana police, the suspect along with his girlfriend only identified as Cel, 16, were having a drinking session while the victims along with four other companions were also having a drinking spree nearby.
The suspect was aggravated when he heard the four laughing, prompting him to stab the victims with a 4-inch knife handed to him by his girlfriend.
The victims were rushed to the Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) where Alontaga was declared dead upon arrival by attending physicians while the wounded victims are still undergoing treatment.
Cel was also wounded in the incident. She was brought by the suspect to SPMC as well.
But as the suspect brought his girlfriend to the hospital, he was jointly mauled by the companions of the victims outside the emergency room.
The companions of the victim brought the suspect to the security guard identified as Dennis Pimentel who endorsed the suspect to Sta. Ana police.
Further investigation revealed that the suspect already advised his girlfriend to carry a knife since they already have a grudge with the victims.
The suspect is now detained at the Sta. Ana police station. He is facing charges of homicide and frustrated homicide.
