A resident of Sitio Tala, Lumbangan, was stabbed to death by a barangay tanod Wednesday night.

Killed was Arvin Bucoy y Covarrubias. He sustained multiple stab wounds in the body and died while he was being taken to the hospital.

Mathias Cabayacruz y Falcasantos of Lumbangan, a tanod, was tagged as behind the fatal stabbing.

A police report disclosed that Bucoy was spotted by Cabayacruz walking along Zone 4 of Lumbangan.

Cabayacruz claimed that he cautioned Bucoy, during which a fight broke up.

Cabayacruz allegedthat Bucoy tried to grab his shotgun which prompted him to pull his knife and stabbed the former several times.

Cabayacruz surrendered to Rogelio Arcillas, barangay chairman of Lumbangan, who brought him to the Divisoria Police Station.

Cabayacruz was detained pending the filing of charges in court. — Dan Toribio
