A 23-year-old man was hacked and wounded by another man with whom he has an old dispute at Sitio Pole Diutay, La Paz, the other night.

Jayson Andico y Bucoy, single, sustained hack wounds in the back of the head and shoulder. He was hacked by Christopher Francisco, married, of Palanas, Baluno.

Police said the bloody confrontation took place around 11 p.m. at the nipa hut of Andico while he was preparing his supper.

Francisco arrived at Andico’s hut and was offered a cup of coffee, but the former suddenly pulled out a bolo and hacked the latter twice.

Police said that despite the wounded in the head and shoulder, Andico managed to run away and sought assistance from his neighbor Noel Panoy who brought him to the Ayala Lying-in Hospital. He was later transferred to the Zamboanga City Medical Center.

Francisco escaped after the incident while police were still conducting operations for his arrest. – Dan Toribio Jr.
