FEU student in stabbing incident faces attempted homicide raps


The police will file attempted homicide charges against the Far Eastern University (FEU) nursing student who stabbed a University of Santo Tomas (UST) student on the FEU campus in Manila on Tuesday evening.

Chief Superintendent Alex Gutierrez, Manila Police District director, said that they have yet to determine the motive for Christina Acosta’s attack on Joanne Lourdes Reyes, 20, an information technology student from UST.

Senior Supt. James Alfalla said that Reyes was at FEU to attend a film showing when she was attacked by Acosta and three others who remain unidentified. Reyes sustained six stab wounds and was reported to be in stable condition at a hospital.

FEU officials expressed regret over the stabbing and said they would cooperate with the police.—Nancy C. Carvajal

    Times seems to be changing this days. It’s very unusual young girls and students at that to stab their fellow female of their age without any serious reason. Why, why,why?

       the suspects are female AND one of them is a nursing student. Why and why? have  people become so immature and tribal that they want to cause injury to anyone not within their small circle? what kind of citizens will they become?

    This is a one-tailed report by most of the news outlets.

    Have you thought one of these:

    1. Bakit sinaksak itong babaeng ito?

    2. According to some FEU students, itong sinaksak na babae ay siyang pumunta mismo sa kaaway nito na nasa Science Building 3rd floor, which is several meters away from place of film showing. Ibig sabihin naghahanap talaga ng away itong babaeng ito. 

    3. If pepper spray ang inispray eh di ang lakas ng amoy na iyon. Many said wala namang malakas na amoy ang naamoy ng mga students na andoon.

    Gets nyo.
