Man dies after being mauled, stabbed in Taguig City
MANILA, Philippines — A man died after being mauled and stabbed by two men in Taguig City, police said Thursday.
The Taguig City Police identified the victim as Romulo Bartolome, and the suspects as Gian Nazareno and Ralph Robante.
According to police, the victim went to the suspects’ house looking for a certain Reagan at around 7:00 a.m. Wednesday. Nazareno’s wife Lea told the victim that the man he was looking for was not around but the victim kept asking.
Police said the victim’s insistence irked Lea, who then told the incident to his husband. A heated conversation later ensued between the victim and the suspects, with Nazareno allegedly stabbing the victim on the left side of his body and Robante punching him several times.
The victim was rushed to Taguig-Pateros District Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival, according to police.
The Taguig City Police was able to arrest Robante but Nazareno managed to escape. /kga
