Viga man hacks uncle over grudge

A criminal charge for slight physical injuries has been filed against a man who attacked his own uncle with a knife the other week over a personal grudge.

Christopher Resurrecion went to the Viga police station right after the incident to surrender along with the butcher knife he used.

According to the police report and a barangay official, the suspect repeatedly hacked Seberino Mercado, an abaca stripper, while the latter was watching a billiards game at about 1:30 P.M. of Dec. 6, 2020.

Mercado managed to run away and sought help from the barangay secretary, with the victim brought to the Viga district hospital for treatment of five hack wounds on his body.
