Man stabbed while collecting debts from 2 neighbors

October 08, 2018

A jobless man, who was demanding payment for long overdue debt from his two neighbors, was critically wounded when the suspects took turns in stabbing him following their heated altercation Sunday night in Caloocan City.

Joey San Juan, 39, of 303 Rivera St., Bgy. 160, was rushed by his relatives to Quezon City General Hospital where he was placed under observation due to stab wounds in the body.

The suspects, identified only as certain “Bobot” and “Boyet Suliven”, immediately escaped after the incident and are being hunted by the police.

Police said the incident happened at 7:30 p.m. when the victim chanced upon his neighbors along Rivera Street and asked the two for the payment of their existing debt.

Instead of asking for extension of time to repay their debt, the suspects allegedly ignored the victim that resulted in their heated altercation.

At the height of their argument, the suspects pulled out a bladed weapon and took turns in stabbing the victim in the body.
