A female teacher stabbed her head teacher for asking her to vacate a room at the Sibulao Elementary School last Tuesday.

The victim was identified as Berjar Ismael y Mohammad, 31 years old, single and a resident of Tagasilay.

ismael claimed to be stabbed by Stephanie Ballaho, 36, married and one of the teachers working at the elementary school.

Initial investigation showed that the incident took place at around 12:50 inside the school campus.

Police said that Ballaho and Ismael figured in a heated argument which led to the stabbing incident.

Ballaho reportedly used a pair of scissors to stab Ismael in the body but the latter was able to parry the attack and was instead hurt in his left palm.

Investigation showed that a few months ago, Ballaho asked permission from Ismael to utilize a vacant classroom which was granted by the latter.

Last Tuesday, Ismael told Ballaho to vacate the room because the head teacher wanted to utilize such for other purposes.

This irked Ballaho who engaged Ismael in an argument.

In the midst of their altercation, Ballaho allegedly pulled out a pair of scissors and attacked Ismael.

Police are still conducting an investigation on the incident.  (Dan Toribio)
