Man survives burns and cuts

A 27-year-old man was rushed to the hospital Tuesday morning for burns in his chest and back, and cuts on his arms after visiting a mountain barangay of Cebu City.

Daniel Uy said several men and a woman attacked him Monday night in barangay Buot, and poured gasoline on him.

The Pardo police station is looking closer into his account after some vital details didn’t match up.

Uy claimed that his assailants tied him to a tree and tried to burn him alive in sitio Lunas after he went to the village to arrange a feeding program with schools for his organization.

But when policemen went to the site, there was no tree or signs of burning and Buot barangay captain Rosalita Callino wasn’t aware of a feeding program or a complaint about a man being burned alive.

“We are conducting a deeper inquiry,” said Chief Inspector Michael Angelo Beltran, chief of the Pardo police station, after the man’s sister told the police that Uy was going through some personal problems.

Uy allegedly went to the upland village to visit an ex-girlfriend who recently broke up with him.

It was past 8 a.m. when Uy arrived in barangay Sudlon 1, where an ambulance brought him down to the Cebu City Medical Center for treatment of his wounds.

Uy initially told responders that seven men tied him up and tried to burn him alive. He gave the names of three persons who he said held grudges against him.
