MANILA – A college student was stabbed dead in Sampaloc, Manila on Tuesday evening.

John Philip Malla, a first year Education student from National Teachers College, was seen on closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage walking with two others along Bilibid Viejo Street and being followed by three men.

The three students and three suspects then turned right to Carpena Street, where the alleged stabbing occurred.

The actual stabbing was not captured on camera, but a man who passed by the area was later seen running to call for help for the victim.

Malla was pronounced dead on arrival in Ospital ng Sampaloc.

Police said robbery may not be behind the crime, as the valuables of the victim were not taken. – report from Francis Faulve, ABS-CBN News
