Anigua fight worries neighbors

Guam - Two men and a woman were sent to the hospital Thursday night with stab wounds after a fight broke out in their neighborhood.

The area has become a concern for not just the neighbors, but to safety officials as well.

Last night's stabbing incident in Anigua came as no surprise to Marie Garong.

Garong, who lives at the Chode Mart, says she was going to do laundry when she saw the lights and heard the sirens from incoming emergency vehicles.

"It always happens every Friday night somebody's drinking and somebody gets drunk and starts a riot with one apartment and the other," she said.

But it's not just the fighting and alcohol Garong is concerned about. "There's a lot of little kids where they run around on the road and then the cars are speeding," she said.

According to Hagatna mayor John Cruz, the area is under close watch following a high volume of complaints ranging from vandalism to kids running in the streets and rowdy neighbors.

Cruz tells KUAM News the complaints to his office started earlier this year which prompted him to call a town hall meeting three months ago with officials from the Guam Police Department and the Guam Fire Department. Specifically, Cruz requested GPD patrol the area more frequently in hopes to deter crime on the Anigua streets.

For neighbors like Garong, she's comforted knowing the Chode Mart is protected by surveillance cameras.
As for last night's stabbing, GPD spokesperson Officer AJ Balajadia confirms the incident occurred at RK Apartments in Anigua and the three victims reported the suspect was drunk and became angry at people in the parking lot where he approached them with a knife.

The female stabbing victim was the suspect's mother. She was stabbed in the thigh in her attempts to stop him.

The suspect's brother was also stabbed in the stomach while the third victim was simply a bystander in the parking lot who was stabbed in the arm.

Tiachy Repaky was arrested as a result on charges of aggravated assault, assault, and family violence.

Guam Memorial Hospital spokesperson June Perez confirms that two males and one female were discharged at four this morning. She adds that another male was admitted and remains in stable condition.

    Government wants full payment from Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho

    It's a $750 wedding ring, but its significance and meaning, priceless. While Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho is serving life behind bars, the government argues he's not being held fully accountable for his crimes. Five years ago, Camacho kidnapped and raped Monique Baza after she made a quick run to the bakery for bread. Though it's a minimal amount for the ring that was never recovered, defense has motioned to waive restitution.  The government, in its response this week, argued ...More >>
