CEBU CITY, Philippines – A father and his son from Dalaguete town in southern Cebu got into a bloody fight over a passenger last Tuesday, July 12, 2022, the police confirmed.

The incident happened in Sitio Guiwanon, Barangay Poblacion, Dalaguete at past 10 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, according to Police Major Gilfred Baroman, the chief of police in Dalaguete.
