Rumor mongering led to a stabbing incident involving two men in Faustino Drive, Mampang last Wednesday.

Tetuan Police Station Commander Supt Nonito Asdai identified the  victims as Anthony Garcia Angeles, 29 years old and Archie Beriano Mariano, 28 years old.   Both are single and residents of Mampang.

Police identified the suspect as Rey Renegado Luciano, 30 years old, and a resident of Mampang.

Initial investigation showed that Angeles and Mariano were confronted by Luciano’s live-in partner over rumors that she and Mariano were having an illicit affair.

During the confrontation, Luciano suddenly arrived and stabbed the victims.

Luciano surrendered to police while the two victims were rushed to a local hospital for treatment.  (Dan Toribio)
