MANILA, Philippines—A two-year-old girl was rushed to hospital after being hacked several times by her father inside their home in Parañaque City Monday, police said.

Police Officer 2 Arlyme Katakutan identified the girl’s father as Mark Palobos, 31, who was seized by neighbors and turned over to police.

The girl was rushed to the Parañaque Doctors Hospital but her condition was unknown.

The incident happened inside their home on El Dorado Street in Barangay (village) Don Bosco, Parañaque City around 3 p.m.

“Based on the initial information, the father got hold of a bladed weapon and started hacking his child,” Katakutan said.

The girl suffered three cuts in the nape. She also sustained burn injuries in the arm, Katakutan added.

Meanwhile, a radio report had it that Palobos brought the bloodied child outside their home and continued hacking her.

When his neighbors tried to stop him, Palobos set on fire a motorcycle, causing burn injuries to the victim, the report said.

The neighbors made a citizen’s arrest on him and turned him over to police.

Police said Palobos was given medical examinations. Jamie Marie Elona

    Naaawa kayo sa mga bibitayin at tinanggal nyo ang death penalty. Paano naman ang mga inosente na namamatay araw araw katulad ng mga ganitong pangyayari dahil sa mga kriminal na walang takot na pumapatay ng tao. Mas marami ang namamatay araw araw dahil walang takot ang mga kriminal sa batas natin. Makulong ka ay libre pa ang pagkain at pagnakalabad ay diretso ang kriminalidad na gawain. Gumawa sana kayo ng statistics in between dami ng mabibitay at sa dami ng mapapatay nila kung wala yang bitay na parusa.

    Buti na lang may mga ganyang kapitbahay.  May malubhang problema sa asawa siguro mamang yun, o di kaya nasisiraan na ng bait.  E kung walang problema sa pag-iisip, dapat sarili na lang niya sinaksak niya.  Kagaling gumawa ng bata, pero ni katiting na pagmamahal wala.

    If this guy can harm his own daughter then how much more for those who are not.  This guy is dangerous and should be imprisoned in the dungeon never to see the light of day again.
