A chairman of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) died after obtaining stab wounds in Makati City past midnight yesterday.
18-year-old Jason Patrick Infante died of five fatal stab wounds while councilman Eric Araneta was beaten along Taguig Street in Barangay Valenzuela. Michael Mate, who was also with Infante, remains in critical condition after sustaining a stab wound.
Acting city police chief Superintendent Jaime Santos said the three were patrolling the area when they encountered Eduardo Bual Saravilla, 21, and Katrina Escover, 24, near a store.
Saravilla, who reportedly got ire when Infante's group reminded them of the curfew rules and other city ordinance, allegedly stabbed the victims. Escover, introduced as Comora's girlfriend is yet to be investigated if she also participated in the attack.
Saravilla, from Cogeo in Antipolo City, is a member of Sigue-Sigue Sputnik Gang and reportedly facing a murder case in Manila.
