4 men nabbed for killing Makati expat; cops mum on names

By

MANILA, Philippines—The Makati City police have arrested four men who allegedly stabbed a foreigner dead in a predawn altercation at the gate of a subdivision on Kalayaan Avenue early Saturday.

The male foreigner was identified in online reports only as “an American diplomat,” but city police chief Senior Supt. Manuel Lukban would only confirm the arrests and declined to name the victim or give his address, citing the request of the family and the village administration for privacy.

He said investigators were still contacting a foreign embassy to further verify the victim’s identity.

Before the incident, he said, four young men in a vehicle tried to enter the village for a shortcut around 4 a.m. but were barred by a security guard. The foreigner, who lived in the village, then approached and joined the guard in asking the men to produce IDs.

“But even (the foreigner) was ignored and the car moved forward, so he tapped the vehicle. The four suspects got off and ganged up on the victim,” Lukban told the Inquirer.

The foreigner was rushed to a hospital after the attack and died of stab wounds in the back around 7:20 a.m., he said.

In a text message, Southern Police District director Chief Supt. Benito Estipona said the four suspects arrived at the village in a Volvo SUV and were arrested by the Makati police “as they were about to flee the crime scene.”

Like Lukban, Estipona also declined to give the suspects’ names but described them to be between 20 and 25 years old, one of them a student and the three “young businessmen.”

    If the four of them ganged up on the victim, then the crime of one is the crime of all. Life in jail, reclusia perpetua. The US will not allow a whitewash. Since mayayaman ang mga eto, dapat hold departure na agad.

    you are having problem with the names of the suspect it is already named in the other other article..here it is :

    George Anikow, 41, an inactive US marine officer, died on Saturday
    morning after he was mauled and fatally stabbed at the back and left
    shoulder in an event so random he and the other men hardly knew each
    other, Senior Supt. Manuel Lukban, Makati police chief, said in an
    interview.

    The suspects identified as Juan Alfonzo Abastilla, 24; Crispin
    dela Paz, 28; Osric Cabrera, 27; and Galicano Datu III, 22, have been
    charged with murder.

    They must suffer the full intensity of the LAW, it’s good that an american diplomat and nakatapat nang mga yan kasi kung sino sino lang…nada na naman yan…also atleast in MAKATI police one of the most efficient POLICE precincts in the country….

      The victim was not a diplomat but the husband of an American diplomat.

  • jga94

    Sigh…yung ibang mga posters dito nagmamarunong na naman. Nahuli na nga agad ng pulis, andami pa ring puna…kung may mali pulis eh di punahin pero kung may ginawang tama, give them due praise….mahirap trabaho nila…

    • gmaisthebestpresident

      ha? trabaho nila sabihin kung sino yung mga suspects na nahuli. Hindi naman mga menor de edad yun para itago mo pangalan. ang problema kasi eh mayayaman ata yung mga nahuli kaya pwede utusan ang mga pulis na itago ang pangalan.

    LAst defense of the abusive four : buy the witnesess that it is not murder but an outrage due to provocation. But what if the US intelligence will intervene and conduct their vengeance inside the jail to these stupid clueless four??
