Man hurt following revenge hit

A man sustained a stab wound following a revenge attack in Km. 16, Sikatoy, Barangay Ilang, Bunawan District on Sunday night.

According to the report, Ramil Sedinio and his brother-in-law, Mark Lester P. Grantos, were having a drinking session when the suspect, identified as Alan B. Pionguinto, arrived and fired a gun at them but missed.

Grantos tried to wrest the gun away from the suspect and he pulled the trigger again but it misfired. The suspect, however, pulled out a knife and stabbed him. Meanwhile, Sedinio ran for cover during the commotion.

The suspect fled on board a waiting motorcycle.

PO2 Noel Tapere of the Bunawan Police District said that earlier that night, the two victims punched the suspect due to a mistaken identity. Police launched a manhunt operation against Pionguinto. (Jeraint Paul Kaiser Mendoza/AdDU Intern)
