A misunderstanding between neighbors led to the stabbing and wounding of a construction worker Friday evening in Caloocan City.

Allan Castillo, 36, of 1406 Heroes D.M. Compound, Bgy. 73 was rushed by his relatives to Caloocan City Medical Center for treatment of stab wound in the body while his neighbor, Jimmy Rivera, 28, surrendered to the police.

Caloocan police chief Senior Supt. Jemar Modequillo said that earlier at around 8 p.m., Rivera and the victim’s brother-in-law, Melvin Alaso, were having a drinking session inside the suspect’s house when they heard Castillo calling for his brother-in-law.

Despite the repeated call, Alaso failed to respond prompting the victim to approach the suspect and tell him to convince his brother-in-law to go home because his wife was waiting for him for dinner.

Rivera allegedly got irked, grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed Castillo once in the body.
