A CCTV footage captured the moment a jealous husband engaged in a fight with two customers and ended up stabbing one in a restaurant where his wife works.

According to an article by GMA News, Ken Murphy Velasco was shouting upon entering a bar in Barangay Poblacion West, Calasiao, Pangasinan.

A witness said that Velasco’s hot temper was directed at his wife’s customers, Justin Calaguio and Jonathan Diolazo, whom he attacked out of alleged jealousy.

Some bystanders tried to stop the fight but Velasco pulled out a box cutter and stabbed Diolazo at the back.

An off-duty police officer happened to pass by the scene and stepped in to end the brawl that could have led to something worse.

The authorities were able to recover the box cutter used by Velasco and send him to jail.

The suspect refused to give a statement, while Diolazo was sent for treatment of his wounds.

Superintendent Charlie Umayam, Calasiao chief of police, said that Velasco became jealous after his wife’s customers advised her regarding their marital problems.
