A plan to conduct illegal mining activities led a man to hack his would-be partner in Barangay La Paz last Sunday.

A Police Regional Office-9 report identified the victim as Sonny Boy Francisco Biabilla, 30 years old, single and a resident of Fortunato, Kilometer 11, Barangay La Paz.

Prior to the incident, Biabilla and the suspect, identified as Felixberto Natividad Villanueva, decided to enter into illegal mining activities but encountered differences of opinion on how to go about the business.

Villanueva, was said to have given advise to Biabilla, which the latter took negatively.

Soon after, Biabilla and a companion went to Villanueva’s house where the two mauled the latter.

Villanueva, however, got hold of a small scythe and used the weapon to hack Biabilla.

Biabella sustained hack wounds in different parts of the body and was taken by motorcycle to the hospital for treatment.

The suspect, Villanueva, is presently detained.
