A 30-YEAR-OLD fisherman has survived the attack perpetrated by three armed men Monday evening in Navotas City.
Jonathan Biguina, resident of Ferry 5, Badeo 5, Bgy. San Roque, Navotas City, was rushed to Tondo Medical Center but later allowed to go home after treatment of stab wound, hematoma, and contusions in the body he sustained from the attack.
An investigation conducted by Navotas Police Homicide investigator P/SSgt. Karl Benzon Dela Cruz showed that while the victim was sitting on the side of the street along Badeo 5 at around 10:30 p.m., three young men, two of them armed with “dos-por-dos”, took turns attacking him and hitting his body.
The victim managed to run, but the suspects chased him, and when cornered, one of the three pulled out a bladed weapon and stabbed him in the back, causing him to fall to the ground.
The timely arrival of responding watchmen of Bgy. San Roque compelled the suspects to escape, leaving the victim sprawled on the pavement.
In a text message, Sgt. Dela Cruz said only two of the three suspects have been identified: Jayson Esparcia, 18, a Grade 8 student and resident of Oliveros St. Tangos North, and Mark Anthony Sevilla, 20, helper, of F. Cruz St., Bgy. Tangos North.
The motive behind the incident is yet to be determined, while a manhunt operation for the possible arrest of the suspects is still ongoing.
