A 59-year-old father was hospitalized after he was allegedly mauled and hacked with a machete by his three sons at Sitio Pinagtolos, Barangay Tadlong in Sagay City, Negros Occidental on Sunday night, August 15.
Police identified the victim as Efren Dadizon, a resident of the said place.
According to Police Lt. Abundio Diaz of the Sagay City Police Station, Dadizon’s sons Ramie, Randy and Kissme were in a drinking session when the elder Dadizon told them to turn down their music.
The victim and Kissme then had a heated argument, which quickly escalated into a mauling.
As Randy and Kissme were allegedly mauling the victim, Ramie picked up a machete and hacked their father on the head, police said.
The three were later arrested by police, while the elder Dadizon was rushed to the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in Bacolod City for treatment.
Police are currently still waiting for the victim’s decision if he will press charges against the three./DGB, WDJ
