FEATURED STORIES

On January 1, Bauan police reported that Manalo and two other policemen responded to an alarm–an attempted stabbing incident–in Barangay (village) San Teodoro at around 10:45 a.m.

Upon arrival at the site, the police found the suspect Jollyben Montoya armed with a bladed weapon.

Despite attempts of negotiation, the suspect suddenly assaulted Manalo and stabbed him on different parts of his body.

The two other policemen retaliated and shot dead Montoya.

Manalo expired while undergoing treatment at Bauan Doctor’s General Hospital 25 minutes later.
