UP Los Baños student robbed and stabbed (new story)

Despite current security measures in Los Baños, a 19-year old student of the University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU) was robbed and stabbed in his own apartment, at 11:50 p.m. last Friday, police said Wednesday.

In a telephone interview, Los Baños Police chief Major Conrado Masongsong identified the victim as Peter Cruz.

Citing initial reports, Masongsong said two men broke into Cruz's apartment in Rhoda's Subdivision, Barangay Anos, Los Baños. The victim, investigation showed, struggled after he noticed two robbers inside his unit — one of them carrying his laptop.

“Nakalaban pa siya gamit ang tubo,” said Masongsong said. “Natamaan niya ‘yung isa sa ulo,” he added.
The victim, according police, was able to reach for a steel pipe for self-defense, but only after receiving shallow stab wounds on his stomach and both arms.

Authorities here are still investigating the incident, Masongsong said, noting the suspects have not been identified as of this posting.

Cruz is a freshman of the Associate in Arts program of the UPOU in this city
