Game-playing with machete results in death of Tamuning resident
On November 7 at around 12pm 30-year old Rusty Rusauo showed up to his cousin Stanley Soulik’s apartment on Sgt. David Camacho Street in Tamuning visibly drunk. Rusauo and his Soulik were playing around with a machete when Rusauo stabbed Soulik in the left leg.
According to court documents Soulik went to the adjacent apartment where another relative lived and was covered in blood clutching his left leg. When the relative made a check of Soulik’s apartment, he saw Rusauo wearing a white jersey covered in blood. According to GFD Spokesperson Kevin Reilly, units responded at around 12:30pm to Soulik who was conscious and transported to the Guam Memorial Hospital for his injury.
Officers with the Guam Police Department located Rusauo about a mile away. He appeared to be highly intoxicated and was observed to have blood on his hands and feet. Court documents state that he was not aware where the blood came from and that he had consumed approximately 12 cans of beer and 2 bottles of beer. Officers confiscated his clothing at the time of his arrest.
Mayor of Tamuning Louise Rivera has confirmed with KUAM that she was informed that Soulik died Friday. She adds, “We are trying to reach out to the family members regarding funeral arrangements. Our condolences to the family.”
Rusauo was charged with aggravated assault as a second-degree felony and a special allegation of possession or use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony but can still face additional charges.
