A security guard was stabbed and killed by a tricycle driver last Wednesday in front of the Unitop along Tobias A. Fornier Street in San Jose de Buenavista, Antique. The fatality was identified as 26-year-old June Sarte, a security guard with the Justice Security Agency and resident of San Remigio’s Barangay Ramon Magsaysay.
Closed-circuit television camera footage showed the suspect, 27-year-old tricycle driver Marion Armonio of Purok 7 in San Jose’s Barangay 1, involved in a confrontation with the security guard around 9:00 a.m.
According to eyewitness accounts, Armonio returned that afternoon and stabbed Sarte around 2:40 p.m., striking him in the back and chest. The suspect quickly fled while drivers in the area stopped to assist the victim.
