Naval, Biliran — A lady boarder sustained physical injuries after an unidentified burglar gained entrance through an unlocked terrace door in one of the rooms of the Gonzales apartment early morning today.
The victim was identified as Marilou Lauzon Calupas, 20 years old, single, a resident of Mayorga, Leyte and a third year Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management (HTRM) student of the Naval Institute of Technology (NIT).
The Gonzales apartment is located a few meters away from NIT and is owned by Atty. Jose Gonzales.
The victim sustained several wounds and bruises on her head and a cut on her right cheek. She is now confined at the Biliran Provincial Hospital.
In a brief interview with the victim this afternoon, she told biliranisland.com that she was not able to identify the burglar but she estimated that her assailant is in his twenties.
The victim added that she was hit by a hard object on her head, which caused her to feel dizzy. She was even told by the burglar not to shout (“Ayaw pag saba!”).
In another interview this afternoon with a lady boarder who slept in the next room at the time of the incident, she said she was awakened by a loud shout coming from Room No. 4 of the apartment around 3 o’clock in the morning.
Upon hearing the loud shout, she opened the jalousie window to know what had happened.
She said that as she looked outside, she just saw the feet of a man hurriedly traversing the balcony of the apartment.
The lady, who refused to reveal her name for security reason, added that as she went outside, she saw the bloody face of the victim and the pool of blood on the floor.
She further told that she was shocked by the gruesome situation of her friend and this prompted her to shout for help.
Her loud shout caused the neighboring residents to be awakened and immediately respond, but the assailant has already escaped
The burglar was also able to enter Room No. 1 of the apartment. No object was lost, but the belongings of the occupants were scattered on the floor, the lady boarder added.
The lady boarder also revealed that the victim was supposed to sleep in Room No. 5 where she slept that night, because that is the room where the victim originally rented together with her.
She said that her friend chose to sleep in Room No. 4 that night since the original occupants who were also their friends were out that night.
The lady boarder could not imagine why such incident happened to her friend. She is also clueless about the motive of the burglar.
