POLICE filed charges before the City Prosecutor's Office against two siblings who mauled and tried to kill a man at the Public Utility Jeepney (PUJ) Terminal in Sison Ave., Country Homes, Buhangin Davao City Sunday.
Sued for frustrated murder and physical injury are Junel, 19, and Jason Nambatac Delamide, 24, both residents of Sison St., Country Homes, Buhangin.
The siblings were charged for assaulting and trying to kill Eduardo Acaso Abay-Abay Jr., a 21-year-old construction worker and a resident of Barangay Communal, Buhangin.
Investigation of the Buhangin police revealed that the incident happened at around 12:30 a.m.
A witness identified as John Mante Canoy, saw the respondents along with their older brother Julius assault the victim.
Canoy also told police that while Jason and Julius were beating up the victim, Junel pulled out a knife locally known as balisong and stabbed Abay-Abay repeatedly hitting the different parts of his body.
Abay-Abay was rushed to the Southern Philippines Medical Center and is still under the watch of physician Julie Javier while the respondents were arrested by Police Officer 3 Marvin Nelmida.
Recovered from the possession of Junel was a bloodied nine-inch knife that he used in stabbing the victim.
The two are currently detained at the Buhangin Police Station while the recovered weapon will be used as evidence against them in court.
Police, however, are still conducting a manhunt operation against the other sibling.
