A drinking spree ended up in tragedy after a 56-year-old man was stabbed to death by his drinking pal at Sitio Little Tondo, San Roque last Saturday night.

Frederic Alberto y Taro, married, of Flamingo, Calarian, was stabbed by Rogelio Faustino y Delos Santos, 58, of Sampaloc, San Roque.

Police said Alberto sustained two stab wounds in the chest and stomach and died on the spot.

Faustino surrendered to the police after the incident and was detained for the filing of charges in court.

Initial investigation disclosed that Alberto and Faustino had been a drinking spree at the residence of Sandy Sanson around 10:30 p.m.

After consuming bottles of beer, a heated argument took place during which Faustino pulled out a bolo and stabbed Alberto twice.

Police said Alberto fell on the ground and died on the spot due to fatal wounds.

Faustino turned over the 18-inch long bolo which he used in attacking his drinking buddy. —Dan Toribio
