Teachers are our second moms but this A 15-year-old student from Pedro “Oloy” N. Roa Senior High School in Cagayan De Oro City stabbed his teacher numerous times last Tuesday, September 13 at 8:00 a.m. in the morning during one of their classes.
The teacher, 43-year old Vilma Cabactulan, who was the adviser of the class Mendeleev of the school’s grade nine students was in critical condition after the incident occurred and was brought immediately to the Madonna and Child Hospital but couldn’t make it as he suffered serious wounds and later died.
Police Chief Inspector Arvies Altitche recovered a knife and the student’s bag in the crime scene. He was then convinced by his parents to surrender to the authorities. He was then brought to the Regional Office of Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
The investigation also suggested that Roa had two accomplices which are both his classmates according to Police Officer 1 Marian Mae Tolentino of the station’s WCPD. The teacher allegedly shames Roa in the class frequently, which might have triggered the student to do such crime. He was also frequently called out for being absent and using phone in classes.
