2 killed in stabbing, shooting
incidents in Bacolod: police
Stabbing and shooting incidents in Barangays 22 and Sum-ag, Bacolod City, Friday that police believed were triggered by old grudges, claimed the lives of a trisikad driver and a construction worker, police records show.
Station 4 deputy chief, Insp. Lanel Mae Lanado, said Renante Jerisan, 37, of Hilado Street, Brgy. 22, a trisikad driver, was stabbed by an unidentified suspect at about 2 a.m. in the barangay for still unknown reason.
Lanado, however, said they are looking into the possibility that the killing could be retaliation, as Jerisan allegedly had stabbed another man at Hilado Street several months ago.
Station 9 commander, Chief Insp. Placido Gentoleo, meanwhile, said that an old grudge could be the motive in the shooting of construction worker Ryan Espanola, 32, of Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, at about 10 p.m. in Purok Fatima, Brgy. Sum-ag.
Espanola’s colleague, Allan Alayon, 40, of Ilog town, Negros Occidental, was arrested in front of the Sum-ag Public Market minutes after the incident, after he was tagged as the suspect in the shooting.
Espanola and Jerisan both had wounds on their chests and were rushed to the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital, where they died while being treated.*APN
Robbery, frustrated homicide raps
to be filed today vs. two teenagers
Robbery and frustrated homicide charges will be filed today before the Bacolod City Prosecutor’s Office against two teenagers who held up and stabbed a tricycle driver in Brgy. Mandalagan, Bacolod City, Thursday.
The charges will be filed against John Michael Gumban, 19, of Purok Yanson 1, Brgy. Mandalagan, and Gerard Cuadra, 18, of Purok Flora, Brgy. Estefania, Bacolod, Station 3 chief, Senior Insp. Conrado Rances III, said yesterday.
Gumban and Cuadra were arrested in follow-up operations from 12 a.m. to 12:50 a.m. Friday in Purok Yanson and at the Bacolod City Public Plaza, Rances said.
He said a concerned citizen tipped the police that Gumban and Cuadra were the ones who robbed and stabbed Rodolfo Camingawan, 42, of Fortune Town Subdivision, Brgy. Estefania, Bacolod, at about 3:40 a.m. Thursday.
Rances said the suspects were presented to Camingawan at Police Station 3 and he positively identified them as the same persons who rode his tricycle at San Juan Street at the Bacolod downtown area, and later robbed him of his P240 in cash when they were in Purok Yanson, while one of them stabbed him on his left shoulder before leaving.
Meanwhile, the cops remain clueless on the identities of the suspects who robbed, stabbed and shot tricycle driver Jessie Magdayao, 39, of Marapara, Brgy. Bata, Bacolod, also on Thursday.
Magdayao is still being treated for a stab wound on his abdomen and a gunshot wound on his left arm, the police said.
A horrified Magdayao told the police Thursday that the two suspects rode his tricycle at Lopez Jaena Street at about 11 p.m. and told him to bring them to Homesite Subdivision, but when they were in a dark portion of the area, they declared a hold-up and one of them stabbed him when he fought back.
The other suspect shot Magdayao when he jumped off the tricycle to escape while the truck he was trying to flag down to seek help from its driver, sideswiped him.*APN
