A pickpocket stabbed and injured an Australian national at Araneta Street in Barangay 36, Bacolod City, at about 3 p.m. Thursday.

Matthew Feuetherdt, 40, temporarily residing in Barangay Tangub, Bacolod, sustained a wound on the palm of his right hand and was treated at the hospital, a police report said.

Investigation showed that Feuetherdt confronted the suspect identified as Jeffry Apdo, 27, of Barangay Singcang-Airport in Bacolod, who was stealing the wallet of an unidentified person, Police Officer 3 RomelBeato, duty investigator of Station 1, said yesterday.

Apdo stabbedFeuetherdt with a gaffe twice, Beato said.

He said Police Station 1 operatives arrested Apdo.

Beato said Apdo was charged yesterday for attempted homicide but he was ordered released after the reglamentary period for his detention lapsed before the raps were filed against him.*SGG

Justice is often served by the family of victims here. I recall a story of a man who went to the police station to confront a fellow charged with killing his nephew. The uncle wanted to see the murderer who had just been apprehended. He faced off with the handcuffed (alleged) murderer cursing and such. In a flash, he produced a knife and stabbed the murderer. Two regrets.

 

He only had a pocket knife so the blade failed to do much damage.

 

He was arrested for attempted murder.

He was probably not complaining too much. There are a lot worse places to be stabbed than in the bacolods :).

I carry this around in the hood where I live, is it legal in the Phils?

It's designed to inflict some serious damage, enough to get away from the situation... it will only kill if you strike the neck/arteries

A ball point pen or a car key to the eye is a game changer and legal to carry even for a foreigner.

Pepper spray and stun guns are legal in the Philippines, and can be carried openly or concealed in most places. Not hard to come by and not expensive either.

That "knife" is forbidden here, also a kubotan - if police stops you and find that you will be charged for carrying a deadly weapon !

As I learn Arnis now (philippino martial arts) my sensai also trains us for sselfdefense against daggers and knifes and such.

So he always explains why not to carry weapons like knifes as police will sure confiscate that and maybe cile a charge.
With Arnis I only have my rattan stiks in my car - or maybe one of them with me - and in case I get controlled "its just a stick Sir" - even police knows that and won't do anything (and I always have my membership card at hand to proof I do Karate/Arnis).

Carrying a knife is not illegal if you carry one for a lawful activity, my activity is cutting up fruit, it might be a good idea to use it for cutting up fruit so you cannot be proved wrong with tests. 

"3.  It is unlawful to carry outside of one's residence any bladed, pointed or blunt weapon such as "knife", "spear", "pana", "dagger", "bolo", "barong", "kris", or "chako", except where such articles are being used as necessary tools or implements to earn a livelihood or in pursuit of a lawful activity. Any person found guilty thereof shall suffer the penalty of imprisonment of not less than one month nor more than one year or a fine of not less than Two Hundred Pesos nor more than Two Thousand Pesos, or both such imprisonment and fine as the Court may direct."

I very much doubt that the reglamentary period is less than 2 days. This cannot be for the charge of attempted homicide.

This is illegal but your "Stick" isn't? My Kubaton is just an over sized key ring
