ANGELES City, Philippines—An American tourist was stabbed and killed by two men who barged into his apartment in Barangay (village) Balibago here on Thursday, police said.

Chief Inspector Luisito Tan, commander of the police’s Station 4 here, said a 12-inch knife was still buried in the nape of William Lavareli, 68, when his body was discovered by neighbors. Two shorter knives were also stuck in his nape and right armpit.

Tan said a belt bag that was usually worn by Lavareli was missing. He said a neighbor heard Lavareli talking to a woman at around 1:30 a.m. Some 30 minutes after the woman left, the neighbor heard a commotion inside Lavareli’s apartment.

The neighbor peeped through the apartment’s kitchen window and saw two men beating up Lavareli, Tan said.
