An upcoming marriage sparked a stabbing incident which injured an 18-year-old man in Barangay Mampang last Friday.

The victim was identified as Jemar Sabdani y Jailani, a resident of Arena Blanco.

Sabdani was reportedly stabbed by Joshua Catubay y Macadinquel, 21, and a resident of Purok 6.

Prior to the incident, both victim and suspect came from the Barangay Hall of Barangay Mampang to reportedly settle an agreement between their families on the marriage of their 16-year-old kin.

On the way home, Catubay stabbed Sabdani with a screw driver, hitting the latter in his right side.

Although wounded, the victim was able to run and report the incident to Zamboanga City Police Station 6.

Responding policemen immediately arrested the suspect.  (Dan Toribio)
