POLICE arrested a 34-year-old laborer who allegedly stabbed a high school student in Barangay Dagsa, Sogod, Southern Leyte Monday, May 3, 2021.

The suspect was identified as Rogelio Lansang Abais, a resident of the said town.

The victim was brought to the hospital for medical attention.

A case is now being prepared for filing against the suspect. (SunStar Philippines)
