A girl was stabbed behind the neck with a stick by a homeless man who also appears to be mentally ill. Facebook user Wee Hong Teo shared videos and photos to show what transpired during the unfortunate incident.
According to a witness, the girl was just going up the footbridge in Quezon City when the man suddenly stabbed her after retrieving a stick. Upon seeing what happened, pedestrians went to help the girl and cornered the man. They hit the man at fault and dragged him. One furious man was caught on camera while he was kicking the suspect.
A photograph shows the girl sitting while using her phone. She was then carefully brought inside the tricycle so she can get medical attention from the hospital. A Facebook user commented that if the stick will stay long on her neck, it might cause her death.
However, in a report by ABS-CBN, the person at fault is only 24-years-old and is suspected to be using drugs. When asked why he did that to the girl, he cannot give a clear answer. The interviewer asked if he did it just for fun and the man nodded.
The Quezon City Police Department is currently working on a case of frustrated homicide against the man. There is no update yet about the victim.

Many also prayed for the safety of the girl. But here’s one commenter who triggered anger from other netizens.
