A resident of Barangay Villamonte, Bacolod City, was fatally stabbed by one of two men on a motorcycle at B.S. Aquino Drive, in the city at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday.
Station 4 chief, Senior Insp. Dianne Grace Aquitania, identified the fatality as Christopher Nacionales, 23, of Mazo Street in Brgy. Villamonte.
Investigation conducted by Police Officer 2 Raymond Bandojo of Police Station 4 showed that Nacionales was standing at B.S. Aquino Drive, when the suspects on board the motorcycle arrived. The back-rider alighted, approached Nacionales and stabbed him.
Witnesses said the suspects and Nacionales had a verbal tussle at a fast food restaurant in Brgy. Villamonte hours before the stabbing, Bandojo added.
Nacionales was rushed to the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital, but died at about 4 a.m. Saturday, he said.

A fisherman was injured when one of the policemen he tried to shoot fired back at about 3 p.m. yesterday in Brgy. Sum-ag, Bacolod City.
Glenn Mark Sitias, “alias Boy Negro” of Purok Mabinuligon, Sum-ag sustained a gunshot wound on his right thigh and is now confined at the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital, Station 9 commander, Chief Insp. Placido Gentoleo, said.
Police Officer 3 Glenn Catulay told the DAILY STAR that he, Police Officer 3 Ronelio Naciongayo and Police Officer 1 Romar Paul Salarda went to Purok Mabinuligon on the complaints of Barangay Tanod Armando Caluscusan, who claimed that Sitias fired at the house of his brother-in law Gilbert Murilla, 21.
When they arrived at the area, Catulay said, Salarda tried to pacify Sitias and asked him to surrender but instead of listening to them, the suspect shot them with an improvised shotgun or “sulpak”.
He said they sought cover behind a coconut tree while Salarda shot Sitias on the thigh to subdue him.
The police seized an improvised shotgun and five bullets of an M14 rifle from Sitias, while two slugs of the same caliber were recovered from the house of Murilla.
Murilla told the police that his father Munding Lima scolded Sitias for mauling his 11-year-old brother, but the suspect summoned them to their house and fired at them about 11 p.m. Saturday.
He said he was carrying his 1-year-old son yesterday afternoon when Sitias tried to shoot him but missed.
Gentoleo said Sitias has other pending cases at police station 8.*APN
