DAGUPAN CITY — Annoyed by the loud conversation, a man stabbed and wounded his brother at Asingan town in Pangasinan province on Wednesday, police said on Thursday.

Roniel Pacios, 41, a tricycle driver, suffered four stab wounds in the abdomen and shoulder after his younger brother, Zian Rudolfh Pacios, 32, attacked him with a knife at 10:15 p.m. in Barangay Ariston West, according to Chief Insp. Ador Tayag, Asingan police chief.


Roniel was conversing loudly with his wife when a drunk Zian stepped out of his house in the family compound and yelled at the couple to stop talking.

Roniel, who was also drunk, attempted to confront Zian, who drew a knife and stabbed him. Zian fled in a motorcycle and is being hunted down by the police.


Earlier on Tuesday night, Roniel and Zian were also engaged in a heated argument, Tayag said. GABRIEL CARDINOZA
