However last Saturday morning Barbon escaped from the hospital and before he left the compound, he took the motorcycle of Marcelino which was parked near the Record Section.

Police said that Barbon threw the identification paper of Marcelino in Lustre, Sta. Catalina before he proceeded to Barangay Buenavista despite his stab wounds.

Barbon had been detained at the city jail for two years in connection with a robbery case. He was released several months ago.- — Dan Toribio
