THREE men, including the namesake of Kapamilya actor Jericho Rosales were arrested following a stabbing and mauling incident Monday evening in Valenzuela City.
Valenzuela police chief Senior Supt. David Nicolas Poklay said Jericho Rosales, 23, plumber Michael Givera, 22, and Jericho’s cousin Rafael Diologo, 23, who were neighbors in Northville, Barangay Bignay were arrested following a brawl at around 10:30 p.m. inside the house of Joshua Jake Ramos, alias “Jekjek”.
Investigation showed that while the suspects, together with Michael’s cousin Ramil Givera, 46, were having a drinking spree inside Ramos’ house in celebration of his brother’s birthday, a heated argument ensued between the Ramos brothers.
Diologo, Rosales and Ramil Givera tried to pacify the two but Ramos, for unknown reason vented his ire on Diologo and with the help of Michael, they took turn in mauling and stabbing the victim.
After stabbing Diologo, Ramos and Michael immediately escaped but Rosales, upon seeing his cousin sprawled bloodied on the pavement, challenged Ramil Givera to a fight but the latter ignored him and decided to go inside their house.
Rosales instead threw stones at the house of Givera until elements of Valenzuela Police Community Precinct (PCP) 7 responded and arrested him.
During a follow-up operation, police also arrested Michael Givera but Ramos continued to elude arrest.
