Trisikad driver stabbed dead
A trisikad driver was stabbed dead by unidentified suspects in Bacolod City at about 2:45 p.m. on Sunday, Police Station 2 commander, Insp. Jeffrey Attunaga, said.
Attunaga identified the victim as Larry Villacarlos, 39, of Brgy.4, Bacolod, who succumbed to multiple stab wounds on his body.
Attunaga said that earlier, on Sunday, they were informed that a body was found lying on the ground at BS Aquino Drive in Bacolod City with multiple stab wounds on his body.
He said they brought the victim to the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival.
The police are trying to establish the motive behind the crime and the identity of the suspects. But, as of yesterday, they had no witnesses yet, Attunaga told the DAILY STAR.
Meanwhile, the body of an unidentified man found in a drainage system in Purok Gold Medal, Brgy. Pahanocoy, Bacolod last week, has already been buried at the Bacolod City Public Cemetery.
Case investigator Police Officer 2 Noel Vergara said they had to bury the cadaver as it was already emitting foul odor and no one has come to the St. Peter Memorial Chapels in Brgy. Alijis to claim it.
Vergara said the unidentified man was about 5 feet and 5 inches tall, estimated to be about 50 years old, with a tattoo on his right shoulder and was clad in maong pants and sweat shirt. It was found by Roger Toldeo, 15, at about 5 a.m. Thursday.
The police has already ruled out the angle of “salvage” since initial examination of the cadaver showed no gunshot or stab wounds.*APN
Theft charges were filed yesterday before the City Prosecutor’s Office against a resident of Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, who was arrested Sunday for taking the purse of a businesswoman at a department store in Bacolod City.
Case investigator Police Officer 2 Eric Lisbo identified the suspect as Nelia de Asis, 52, of Brgy. Banilad, Dumaguete City, who is now detained at the lock-up cell of Police Station 1.
Complainant Ofelia Verzosa, 53, of Brgy. 35, Bacolod told the police Sunday that she was at Lopue’s Araneta Department Store at about 10:30 p.m. when two middle aged women pressed against her.
Verzosa said that she immediately checked her shoulder bag and saw the suspect holding her purse containing a Bible and P3,200 in cash.
With the help of the security guard on duty, De Asis was arrested and was turned over to PO3 Dave Dollosa.
Lisbo told the DAILY STAR they will check if the suspect is part of a syndicated group since they received information that she allegedly operates in the cities of Dumaguete and Cebu and in some places in Mindanao.*APN
