A construction worker was stabbed dead while four others were injured in separate violent incidents in the province in the past two weeks.

A belated report from the Pandan police station stated that the lone fatality was recorded in Tariwara, Pandan, last Nov. 12, 2018 where two construction workers were involved.

Police said both Ronald Espanio Singson, 20, and Normito Eugenio Bagay, 39, were drinking liquor at the residence of one Dennie Bermejo at 7 P.M. that day when Singson borrowed Bagay’s motorcycle.

Unfortunately for Singson, he met an accident that resulted in damage to the vehicle. He went back to his drinking partner and informed him about it, promising to pay for the damage.

However, when they went to inspect the motorcycle at its parking place, Bagay became enraged upon seeing the damage to his vehicle. He drew a “balisong” and stabbed Singson several times.

The victim was rushed to the Pandan district hospital for immediate medical attention but he was declared dead on arrival by Dr. Rafael Mariano.

In Panganiban town, an abaca stripper survived being hacked by his drinking partner, sustaining only a minor injury during the Nov. 14, 2018 incident.

According to the police, both Dennis Maitim Pulton, 44, and Ryan Tomazar Morales, 30, both of barangay Cabuyoan, were engaged in a drinking spree at 7:40 A.M, when a heated argument arose between them.

Morales got his book and hacked his pal in the right arm.

Responding barangay officials brought the injured Pulton to the Viga district hospital while barangay captain Elmer Casimsiman accompanied the suspect in surrendering to the police about 12 hours later.

In Virac, a farmer was hacked twice in the abdomen after he confronted another farmer last week.

The report stated that the suspect, Gallardo Vargas Talion, 54, was having a drinking spree with Dindo Manlangit and Romeo Tabirara at the latter’s house at about 7:30 P.M. of Nov. 12, 2018 when Eutaquio Castillo Tajan, 46, suddenly appeared before them.

Talion reportedly asked the victim, “Ano ang problema mo?”

When Tajan answered, “Grabe na ang atraso mo,” Talion instantaneously drew his bolo and hacked Tajan twice on the left abdomen.

Barangay officials rushed the victim to the Eastern Bicol Medical Center for treatment while the suspect was arrested by responding lawmen after he was positively identified by witness John Jansen Reyes,

Five days earlier in Pandan, two brothers in Baldoc were wounded when they engaged in a bolo duel after a heated argument.

Police stated that at about 8:45 P.M. of Nov. 7, Emeterio Lopez, 53, and Reynaldo Lopez, 54, had a heated argument regarding family problems that deteriorated into a fistfight.

Reynaldo tried to evade further violence by going home but he was chased by Emeterio. At this instance, Reynaldo got a bolo and exchanged blows with Emeterio, causing them both minor wounds.

Both were eventually pacified and brought to the Pandan district hospital by responding barangay officials who had witnessed the trouble. No charges were filed before the police.
