Man stabs, injures wife with ice pick in Mandaluyong
Mandaluyong City Police officers and village watchers from Barangay Plainview arrested a man shortly after stabbing and wounding his wife with an ice pick on Wednesday.
An initial report by Mandaluyong Police said that prior to the incident, suspect Herman Pang-itan, and his wife Nelia had an argument inside their house at 9 Kislap Street, Barangay Plainview, late Wednesday night.
Police said that as Nelia shouted, their daughter Christine woke up, only to find an ice pick on her mother’s body. Christine removed the ice pick and allowed her mother to escape, police said.
After that, the suspect again attempted to stab his wife outside the house using a Phillips screw driver but was pacified by her daughter.
The victim was brought to the Mandaluyong City Medical Center while the suspect is under the custody of Mandaluyong police, and is waiting inquest proceedings. /muf
