The victim identified as 19-year-old Gabriel Capco, a resident of Bonifacio Global City in Taguig is now recuperating from his injuries at the Makati Medical Center.

Police are still hunting down the three suspects who remain at large.

Investigation showed that the victim attended a birthday party at his cousin’s prior to the incident, where the suspects were also having a drinking spree just near the area.

Police said that the two groups had a misunderstanding which led to a brief scuffle. As the victim left the area, the three suspects followed him on a motorcycle as he boarded a jeep.

They later took turns in stabbing the victim before fleeing the scene. Police are still investigating the incident in order to identify and arrest the suspects.
