A minor and four others were injured in separate stabbing, hacking, and shooting incidents on February 11 in Negros Occidental, where two of the three suspects were already accounted for by the police.

A 16-year-old and his two companions were injured after being stabbed inside a benefit dance hall on Sunday at Sitio Urbasa in Brgy. Mabini, Escalante City, Negros Occidental.

The stabbing incident took place after the three victims and the 19-year-old suspect figured in heated arguments.

The suspect, whose identity was withheld by the police, surrendered to the Escalante City Police Station, while the three victims were rushed to the Vicente Gustilo District Hospital for treatment to their injuries.

A stabbing suspect was also arrested by the police also on Sunday, after fleeing from the crime scene in Hacienda Rosario, Brgy. E. Lopez, Silay City.

Initial police investigations showed that the 57-year-old victim was cleaning his pig pen when the suspect, armed with a bolo, hacked him in the left shoulder without any provocation.

The 46-year-old suspect was later apprehended by the police as a result of their pursuit operations.

The police also recovered the 12-inch bolo allegedly used in the commission of the crime.

Meanwhile, a shooting incident at Purok Sunshine also in Brgy. E. Lopez, Silay City, led to injuries to a 40-year-old resident of the place.

The victim suffered gunshot injuries at his left abdomen and right forearm, after being shot by the suspect, following a fist fight during a drinking session.

The suspect immediately fled, while the victim is being treated for his injuries at the Teresita Lopez Jalandoni Provincial Hospital in Silay City.*
