Parañaque man stabbed dead by teen partner

/ 01:01 AM January 25, 2017

A 34-year-old man was stabbed dead by his 19-year-old live-in partner on Monday in Parañaque City after he complained that she had been  spending too much time with her friends.

The victim, Melson Ballesteros, and Angel Mae Catugda were last heard having a heated argument in their house on Talisay Street at  Masville, Barangay BF Homes, around 2 a.m., according to Michael, the victim’s younger brother.

The case investigator SPO1 Joel Romantico of the Parañaque police, said Ballesteros was telling Catugda to stop going out with friends late at night, to which she reportedly replied: “Wait for my revenge! (Hintayin mo resbak ko!)” She apparently left the house and returned at around 2:45 a.m. to stab the sleeping Ballesteros at least three times.


Ballesteros was brought by his brother to Medical Center Parañaque, where he was declared dead on arrival due to stab wounds in the shoulder and torso. Catugda escaped and remained at large at press time.

The police recovered the 11-inch knife used in the assault.  —Dexter Cabalza
