Catanduanes police have arrested two suspects in the separate fatal stabbing of two men, including a village official, in the towns of Baras and Bagamanoc last week.

In Baras, police officers pursued and arrested a farmer after he fatally stabbed a barangay councilor and wounded another man during a benefit dance last week.

Law enforcers led by Capt. Michael Albania nabbed Joey Tucay, 31, who will face charges of murder and frustrated murder filed at the Office of the Provincial Prosecutor.

The police report stated that the violent incident occurred at 12:50 A.M. of May 8, 2019 during the Women's Organization Benefit Dance held at barangay Moning.

Investigation disclosed that Tucay followed barangay kagawad Wilmer Taopo, 50, put his left arm on the victim's shoulder and then stabbed him nine times using a knife. Raul Camacho, 49, who witnessed the incident, tried to pacify the farmer, who stabbed the former twice. .

The victims were rushed to Eastern Bicol Medical Center in Virac for immediate medical treatment but Taopo later died due to shock caused by massive loss of blood.

In Bagamanoc, police officers collared construction worker Mark Aljon Makiling, 28, after he killed fellow Antipolo resident Nelson Fernandez Vitalicio, 51, during a drinking spree last May 9, 2019.

The report said that at 9 A.M. that day, the suspect was having a drinking session at the residence of Oscar Vitalicio with two other companions when Nelson arrived. He then confronted Makiling in a heated argument over an unspecified matter.

Makiling went inside the house, returning armed with a knife and stabbing the unsuspecting Vitalicio before he was disarmed by two companions. The victim managed to flee but Makiling ran after him, punching Nelson several times until he fell unconscious.

Vitalicio was brought to Viga district hospital but was declared dead on arrival. An appropriate charge is being prepared for filing against Makiling who is now under the custody of Bagamanoc MPS.
