POLICE believe jealousy could be the motive behind the stabbing and wounding of 34-year-old man by the former husband of his current live-in partner Sunday afternoon in Malabon City.
Severo Luzon, of 25 Doña Juana St., Bgy. Pot-rero, sustained stabbed wounds in the back and abdomen. He is under observation at Valenzuela Medical Center.
Malabon police homicide investigator PO2 Roldan Angeles said the victim was sitting in front of his house at 5 p.m. when the suspect, Eddie Legal, 50, of 40 K.A. Paplo, Kaunlaran, Valenzuela City, arrived and confronted him about his ex-wife, Catherine Legal.
A heated argument ensued between them until the suspect pulled out a bladed weapon and stabbed the victim twice.
The suspect fled but was chased and collared by victim’s neighbors and turned him over to the Police Community Precinct (PCP) 2.
