The suspect in the murder of a mechanic in Mampang last Monday was arrested in Oroquieta city yesterday morning.

The suspect, identified as Noel Fuentes Doliente, was arrested by combined PNP elements composed of the Tetuan Police Station led by Supt Nonito Asdai and the Oroquieta Police Office headed by Supt Allan Ruba.

Asdai  conducted hot pursuit operations in Oroquieta city after receiving information that Doliente had fled to the area.

Together with Oroquieta police, Doliente was collared and immediately brought to Zamboanga and detained at the Tetuan Police Station.

Recall that victim Dominador Gomez went to the house of Doliente to get a motorcycle spare part that the latter borrowed a few days ago.

The two however figured in a heated argument which led Doliente to stab Gomez.

Gomez died on the spot while Doliente escaped before police arrived in the area.  (Dan Toribio)
