A 15-year-old student stabbed his teacher thrice resulting to her untimely death after she reprimanded him of using a cellphone inside the classroom.
On Sept. 13, a male Grade 9 student killed his teacher at the Pedro “Oloy” N. Roa Sr. National High School in Barangay Canitoan, Cala-anan, Cagayan de Oro. Vilma Cabactulan, 43, was rushed to the Madonna and Child Hospital in Carmen town after the incident where she later died.
“After he was reprimanded, the student attacked the teacher, who received three stab wounds on her back, and was immediately brought to Madonna and Child Hospital for medical intervention, but she expired later in the day,” SPO4 Dominador Datahan said.
The suspect, who was not named because he is a minor, immediately fled after stabbing his teacher. He turned himself after he was persuaded by his relatives to the police. He admitted to stabbing his teacher, but confessed that two other students are involved in the incident. He added that they agreed to draw lots on who will stab Cabactulan.
Investigation is underway and PO1 Marian Mae Tolentino of Buluan Police Station’s Women and Children’s Protection Desk (WPCD) has to talk to the two other boys.
