A man was killed, while his sibling was wounded, last Sunday after they were stabbed at Purok Naga in Barangay Binicuil, Kabankalan City.

Police identified the fatality as 27-year-old Junel Oviedo, a resident of the said area. Authorities, meanwhile, have refused to identify Oviedo’s younger sibling who was wounded in the incident.

Kabankalan City police chief, Police Lieutenant Colonel Jonel Guadalupe, said the brothers were attending a dance event when the suspect, whom he requested not be named, stabbed the two siblings.

Guadalupe said, prior to the stabbing, the suspect was inebriated.

Both victims were rushed to the city’s district hospital; however, the elder Oviedo was declared dead on arrival by hospital staff.

Police are presently conducting a manhunt operation against the suspect./DGB, WDJ
