Former Green Archer Jeron Teng, along with former teammates Thomas Torres and Norbert Torres, was stabbed during an altercation outside Early Night? Club in Bonifacio Global City earlier this morning, June 3, as initially reported by Tiebreaker Times.
Teng, who now plays for the PBA’s Alaska Aces, was reportedly stabbed in the back with a knife, while the other two were slashed in their arms. All three are reportedly in stable condition and will be able to recover from their injuries. Teng and N. Torres, who plays for Rain or Shine, both played in games on Saturday night before the incident.
The confrontation between the suspects and the former Green Archers happened at around 2:30 in the morning, when the the latter were walking in the parking lot outside of the bar. Police identified three suspects: Edmar Manalo, Joseph Varona, and Willard Basil. All three of whom have been arrested.
Teng and T. Torres both graduated from the team in 2016, after two titles. They later joined the PBA Draft in October 2017, getting drafted to the Alaska Aces and the Star Hotshots, respectively. Meanwhile, N. Torres, who was part of the 2013 championship team, finished his UAAP career in 2015.
