Initial investigation showed that Dayanan allegedly went to the house of another neighbor at past 9 a.m. that day, where he spoke with a female neighbor. It was then that Manguilimotan arrived, and he later engaged Dayanan to a heated argument. 

Eventually, they ended up in a fistfight. After both senior citizens were separated, Manguilimotan went to his house, grabbed a 19-inch bolo, and went back to where Dayanan was.

Manguilimotan then attacked Dayanan using the bolo. He hacked Dayanan several times. Dayanan was wounded in the arm and head from the attack.
