Welder stabs security guard
A guard was stabbed by a welder of the Federal Johnson Machine Shop where he was assigned in Brgy. Banago, Bacolod City, at about 2:45 a.m. yesterday.
Police Officer 2 Eliseo Adraneda, case investigator of Station 3, identified the victim as Jeorge Salvador, 28, of Brgy. Sum-ag, Bacolod, and employed by the Red Gray Fox Security Agency.
Salvador sustained a stab wound on his stomach and was brought to the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital, Adraneda said.
Investigation showed that Jeasmar Azucenas, “alias Dondon”, 28, of Hacienda San Benito, Calatrava town in Negros Occidental, a welder in the shop, had asked Salvador if he could sleep at the shop because he and his wife had a fight earlier.
Salvador said that when he opened the gate, Azucenas stabbed him with a knife and his two other companions, whom the guard said he did not initially notice, entered the shop and took some items.
Adraneda said Salvador managed to draw and fire his .38 caliber revolver but failed to hit the suspects as his gun malfunctioned when he pressed the trigger.*SGG
