Police are still investigating the reason why a father stabbed his own son in Barangay San Vicente, Dumingag Municipality, Zamboanga del Sur last Saturday.

A Police Regional Office-9 report said that the 9-year old boy was sleeping beside his mother when the latter was awakened by the groan of the child.

The mother woke up to find her son bleeding and her husband kneeling alongside the latter, holding a knife.

The mother immediately grabbed her husband’s hand and tried to wrestle the knife away while shouting for help but the latter was too strong.

The woman was then horrified after her husband stabbed himself in the abdomen several times.

Both the victim and the suspect sustained stab wounds on the abdominal portion of their bodies and were rushed to the hospital for treatement.  (Remus Ong)
