Man stabs his mother after she steals his food
A hungry stomach knows no law — not even with your own mother.
This was the case for Edgar Vosutros, a tapasero (sugarcane farmer), who was arrested by police after stabbing his 65-year-old mother Zosima for allegedly stealing his dinner.
Initial report by Senior Police Officer 3 Jovanne Placencia showed that Edgar came home in Barangay Calambua, San Remegio, Cebu from a drinking spree when he found that his viand was missing.
He immediately confronted Zosima and accused her of stealing the food.
A verbal tussel ensued which prompted the suspect to pull out a knife and stabbed his mother on her left thigh.
Upon seeing his bleeding mother, the suspect regained consciousness and dropped the weapon.
The younger Vosutros will face charges of frustrated parricide should his mother decided to file an affidavit.
