Noisemaker killed by drinking buddy



Making too much noise ahead of the New Year proved fatal to a 29-year-old man who was stabbed to death early Monday by a drinking buddy in Quezon City.

Arnel Caguioa, a resident of Road 6, Purok 5, Sitio Kumunoy in Barangay Bagong Silangan, died instantly due to multiple stab wounds.

His alleged attacker and neighbor, identified only as “Macmac Kirat Alvero,” fled afterward.

PO2 Alvin Quisumbing of the Quezon City Police District’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit said the stabbing happened around 2 a.m. near Caguioa’s home.

According to Quisumbing, Alvero and three other neighbors were having a drinking spree when Caguioa, who was drunk, joined them.

A witness told the case investigator that as Caguioa grew unruly and started mouthing off, Alvero got irked. He then took out a knife and stabbed the victim repeatedly.

The commotion roused another neighbor, Rina Donaire, from sleep. She heard Caguioa cry out for help and saw him fall bloodied to the ground, prompting her to seek help from barangay (village) officials.

But by the time help arrived, the victim was already dead from his wounds while his attacker had fled.
