B.S. Agriculture student Ray Bernard Peñaranda was reportedly stabbed by motorcycle-riding in tandem hold-uppers Sunday morning along F.O. Santos St., Umali Subdivision after he refused to hand over his things.
He was rushed to the Los Baños Doctors Hospital and Medical Center but was declared dead on arrival. He was 19 years old.
According to authorities, Peñaranda was walking along the said street at around 1 a.m. with two of his friends. They were on their way back to their apartment following a dance practice inside the UPLB campus when they were held up by the suspects. They tried to flee but the victim was chased down and was stabbed on the chest with a knife.
