EL NIDO, Palawan — A 43-year-old fisherman was wounded after he was hacked multiple times in Barangay Bucana here over the weekend.

Local police authorities identified that victim as Alejandro Galit Pajanto while the suspect was named as Angel Bicua Gacos, 34, both residents of the same barangay.

According to the investigation report made by P/SSg. Francis Carlo Soberano, P/Cpl. Ronald Tenorio, Patrolman Michael Tom Kutat, the incident happened at around 5 p.m.

Gacos was reportedly sitting near the post of the hanging bridge when Pajanto came and threw a stone at him.

Pajanto, on the other hand, was rushed to a health center in Brgy. Pasadeña for the treatment of his hack wounds.

Bucana barangay chairman Aracel Bacolod was the one who reported the incident to the El Nido municipal police station.
