A 25-year-old man who was stabbed “multiple times” by a co-worker in Batuan town is still in critical condition at Gov. Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital in Tagbilaran City since he was brought there last Thursday.
Batuan Police responded to a call shortly after 7 p.m. last Thursday and transported the victim identified as Arnel Eco to the hospital.
Eco, a resident of Brgy. Hanlod in the said town, had an argument with the suspect identified as Gino Lungato.
Lungato went to Eco’s house to confront him about an issue at work.
Eco, who was unaware that Lungato had a sharp object with him, was stabbed multiple times on his stomach.
The suspect then fled on foot before the police arrived.
In a follow-up operation, Lungato was apprehended and is now detained at the Batuan Police Station.
