THE Makati City police filed murder charges against four suspects, including a De La Salle University (DLSU) student, for the fatal stabbing of a husband of a US Embassy employee last Saturday at the gate of Bel-Air Rockwell, Brgy. Poblacion.
The student was identified as Galicano Datu III, 22, of P. Ocampo, Malate.
The other suspects were Crispin dela Paz Jr., 28, businessman residing at Unit 2B, Luna Apartment, Buendia; Juan Alfonso, 24, businessman and resident of Unit AB 130 Galeria de Magallanes, Lapu-Lapu ave. Makati; and Osric Cabrera Malabanan, 27, a businessman residing at Lot 19, Block 3, Bougainvillea Street, Barangay Pembo.
They were charged with killing American national, George Anikow, 41, of No. 9, Soler Street, Bel-Air Village.
The Southern Police District report showed that at around 4:20 a.m., Saturday, the security guards of Bel-Air were checking Anikow when the suspects on board a black sports utility vehicle tried to gain entry into the village.
Anikow told the suspects to present their IDs but they ignored him. Anikow reportedly slammed his fist on the SUV that resulted in a confrontation with the suspects who mauled and stabbed him.
Anikow died at the Makati Medical Center from stab wounds on the chest and back.
The four were arrested by responding Makati policemen near the vicinity of Rockwell Center.
A statement issued by US Embassy press attache Tina Malone confirmed that the victim was a husband of one of their employees.
She declined to identify the employee for reasons of “privacy.”
“The US Embassy appreciates the cooperation of the Philippine authorities and will work closely with the police in their investigation,” the statement said.
