A man was hacked and wounded by his own buddy during a drinking session in Zone 2, Lanzones last Sunday night.

Culianan Police Station Commander Chief Insp. Hazel Fernandez identified the victim as Rodolfo Dolorico y Immerables.

He sustained a hack wound in the stomach and was taken to the hospital.

The suspect was identified as Felix Pantaleon y Angeles who was arrested during a follow-up operation.

Initial investigation showed that at around 9 p.m. Dolorico and Pantaleon and some friends were having a drinking spree in front of a store.

After consuming bottles of beer they figured in a heated argument.

A couple of seconds later, Pantaleon pulled out a bolo and hacked Dolorico in the body.

Police said that attending physicians later declared the victim in stable condition.

Appropriate charges are being readied against the suspect in court. – Dan Toribio
