November 07, 2018

AN unidentified man believed to be victim of summary execution was discovered in a dimly-lit portion of the road early yesterday in Caloocan City.

Police said the victim bore several stab wounds in the body and was believed killed somewhere and dumped along Maranaw Street inside Saint Dominique Subdivision in Bgy. 128, Deparo.

The victim was discovered by tricycle driver Aristotle Gutierrez, 39, who was about to pick up a passenger in the area at 1:05 a.m., prompting him to seek the assistance of roving barangay watchmen.

Meanwhile, a 17-year-old out-of-school youth was in critical condition after he was repeatedly stabbed by one James Lee Bitas at 11 p.m. Tuesday in Navotas City.

Fausto dela Cruz and his friends were having a drinking spree at a birthday party of his cousin when he was hit by an empty bottle of liquor in the head then stabbed repeatedly in the body using a broken bottle by Bitas, of Pabahay, Bgy. Tanza, for still unknown reason.

The suspect escaped while the victim was rushed to Navotas City Hospital but was later transferred by his relatives to Tondo Medical Center.
