A market porter was seriously wounded after being hacked in the head by a buko vendor in Sta. Cruz, Manila, the other day.

Victim Aries Mariano, 41, of 1710 Old Antipolo St., Sta. Cruz, Manila, remains in a hospital after receiving treatment for a wound in the head.
   
Authorities are now looking for the suspect, identified only through his alias as ‘Nelson Atienza.’
   
Supt. Santiago Pascual III, commander of the Manila Police District (MPD)-Station 3, stated that the hacking took place at around 5:30 p.m. at the corner of P. Guevarra and Blumentritt Streets in Sta. Cruz.
   
Prior to this, the suspect reportedly confronted the victim for allegedly stealing his fighting cock last Saturday and failing to return it despite insistent demands.
