ILOILO City – A stabbing incident in Barangay San Juan, Molo district left three persons wounded.

Leonard Ignacio, 27, also a resident of the village, received treatment at the Western Visayas Medical Center – also in Mandurriao district.
According to police investigation, the stabbing happened after a heated argument ensued between the group of Leonard and Christopher around 8 p.m. on Nov. 17.
Leonard reportedly tried to pacify his elder brother Leo who had a heated argument with Geraga. This prompted Geraga to stab Leonardo on the stomach. Ignacio’s group then retaliated, attacking Geraga and Cerveza.
