A 33-year-old man was hacked with samurai sword by his neighbor along I. Magno Street Saturday afternoon.

The victim was identified as Saidimar Jubail y Sappari, 33, married, of Barangay Sta. Catalina. He was hacked by Michael Angeles, a PUJ driver.

Although wounded, Jubail managed to run to the Central Police Station to report the attack.

Initial investigation disclosed that Jubail was driving his service vehicle from Canelar when he saw his neighbor standing in fronting Avon cosmetics waving his hands, asking for a ride which he acknowledged.

But Angeles who was enroute to Canelar got angry thinking that Jubail grabbed a prospective passenger.

When Jubail arrived at I. Magno St., he disembarked from his vehicle to buy DVD discs. He saw Angeles murmuring that prompted him to approach and talk to the PUJ driver,  but he was struck with a steel  pipe three times and attacked him with a samurai sword hitting him in the arm.

Jubail’s Seiko automatic wristwatch worth P 7,000 fell on the ground and was allegedly picked by Angeles and fled aboard his PUJ.

Jubail was brought to the hospital for treatment while the police have readied charges against Angeles. —  Dan Toribio Jr.
