Trike driver stabbed dead
A trisikad driver died in a hospital after he was stabbed allegedly by one of four men who ganged up on him in Brgy. 3, Bacolod City Sunday.
Killed was Robecco Concepcion, 34, of Purok Lubi in Brgy. 3, Bacolod, case investigator Police Officer 1 Robert Toreno said yesterday.
Witness Louie Sumaguin told the police that Concepcion was ganged up on by a certain “Jason Baron”, “alias Ranington” and their two unidentified companions at about 11:30 p.m.
Baron, who is employed at the City Legal Office, was accompanied by lawyer Cesar Beloria when he surrendered to police station 2 yesterday afternoon.
Baron said it was “alias Ranington” and his two companions, whose names the police withheld, who were responsible for ganging up on, and killing Concepcion.
Baron is now in the custody of Police Station 2 while “alias Ranington” reportedly fled to Iloilo City, Station 2 commander Chief Insp. Noel Polines said.
Toreno’s initial investigation showed that Concepcion was walking at the alley of Purok Lubi when he accidentally bumped into one of the suspects and led to the mauling.
One of the four took a bladed weapon from his waistband, stabbed Concepcion in the chest, and fled with his companions. Concepcion died on the way to the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital, Toreno told the DAILY STAR.
Station 2 policemen and the officials of Brgy. 2 have launched a manhunt operation to arrest the suspects, who were still at large as of yesterday.
Meanwhile, operatives of Police Station 6 operatives have acquired a copy of the pictures of the suspects who stabbed and killed a Hospitality Management student of La Consolacion College-Bacolod at Lizares Avenue in front of University of Negros Occidental Recoletos Friday.
William Robert Ong, 18, of Regent Pearl Homes Subdivision, in Brgy. Alijis, Bacolod was rushed to CLMMRH but succumbed to a lone stab wound on his chest while being treated.
Ong and his companion, Paul Gonzales, were resting at a nearby eatery when the suspects frisked Ong, who woke up and fought back with them. One of the suspects stabbed Ong on the chest and fled with his companions.
Station 6 commander, Chief Insp. Placido Gentoleo, disclosed that their witness is reluctant about giving statements although this will not hinder them from filing charges against the suspects, whose identities he withheld.
Gentoleo also appealed to the suspects to surrender and face the consequences of what they did.*APN
