Former La Salle teammates Jeron Teng, Norbert Torres, and Thomas Torres sustained stab wounds from a parking lot assault on Saturday in Bonifacio Global City, the police confirmed.
The Alaska Aces rookie was reportedly struck at the back, while the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters center and MPBL player for Mandaluyong El Tigre got hit in the arm. All of them are currently recuperating and under supervision at St. Luke's Medical Center.
According to sources, CCTV footage helped in identifying the perpetrators, namely Edmar Manalo and Randy Casila, with the former having already been apprehended. They allegedly taunted the trio, which led to the altercation around 2:30 a.m. outside the Early Night Bar.
Their respective families have yet to give an update on Thomas, Norbert, and Jeron's condition, but that didn't stop netizens from extending their "Get well soon wishes" to the ex-DLSU players.
The incident was unimaginable
Sports personalities are closely monitoring the situation
But not to the point of invading their privacy
We weren't the only ones who were in shock
What is happening to PBA players?
The Animo Nation must stay strong
Forget the collegiate rivalries in the meantime
A reminder to be careful always
This would be a symbol of their fighting spirit
Get well soon, guys
