Jeron Teng and two of his former teammates in De La Salle University, Norbert Torres and Thomas Torres, were stabbed in the parking lot of an establishment located in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City, early Sunday.
All three are currently confined in St. Lukes Medical Center, also in Taguig, and are said to be in fair condition, a doctor from the hospital told Tiebreaker Times.
According to the group’s report, Teng, Norbert, and Thomas were on their way home when a group of elderly people confronted them.
As things got heated, the group drew a knife, slicing the forearms of Norbert and Thomas while stabbing Teng at the back.
According to a police report released the suspect have been identified as 40-year-old Filipino-American Edmar Manalo, 33-year-old Arab-Filipino Joseph Varona, and 38-year-old Filipino-American engineer Williard Basili. All three have been arrested.

On the other hand, Norbert also had a game last night, finishing with five points during Rain or Shine’s 99-96 win over Magnolia.
