Burglar kills woman, injures man after being caught stealing in Cagayan


Piat, Cagayan – A thief stabbed a woman to death and injured a man after he was caught stealing from a house in Santa Barbara, Piat, Cagayan over the weekend.


Maricon Reyes, the fatality, was asked by her sister to look over their house while on an outing on August 05 when the incident happened, Piat police said.

On said day, the victim heard some noise at her sister’s house, urging her to check what was going on inside.


There, he saw the suspect, identified by police as Darwin Tumbali, a resident of said area stealing some belongings.


The suspect is said to have been surprised when someone caught him, causing him to stab Maricon seven times which led to the latter’s death.
