LUCENA CITY – A local government employee was critically injured after he was hacked by a buddy in a drinking session in Burdeos town in Quezon province early Sunday, police said.

The Quezon police in a report said the victim, Jeffrey Buefano, suspect Eddie Combalicer, and two others were having a drink in the town center at around 12:10 a.m.

The report said Combalicer left the drinking session, came back armed with a bolo and without any reason repeatedly hacked Buefano.

The victim sustained eight hack wounds in different parts of the body and was taken to the rural health unit in the locality for emergency treatment.

Combalicer escaped after the incident while police launched a manhunt to arrest him.

The police report said the hacking incident was motivated by “anger due to too much intake of liquor” but did not explain what triggered the suspect’s feelings against the victim.
