03 October 2012, 9:07 p.m. – Far Eastern University (FEU) has confirmed the stabbing incident involving a Thomasian who attended a film showing at the Morayta campus Tuesday night.

In a statement on FEU’s website, Albert R. Cabasada III, director of the school’s Admissions and External Relations Office, said: “FEU is giving its full cooperation in the investigation, making all its resources, including on-campus CCTV (closed-circuit television) footages and access to witnesses, available to the investigating team of the Philippine National Police.”

FEU said the victim, identified as UST Information Technology senior Joanne Lourdes Reyes, was in “stable condition” at the Chinese General Hospital.

An FEU student, who asked not to be identified, said that at around 6:30 p.m. of Oct. 2, a female student came rushing to their class telling the professor that a girl had been stabbed.

All of them panicked and came out, the student said.

Reyes was seen bleeding profusely at the third floor of FEU’s Science Building.

The FEU student affairs and security offices immediately attended to Reyes and brought her to the Chinese General Hospital.

Various reports said four to six persons wearing nursing uniforms attacked Reyes and her companion with pepper spray, before stabbing Reyes. Prior to the incident, two men wearing civilian clothes were seen roaming around the area, the FEU student said.

The class was later asked to view CCTV recordings.

Lahat kasi sila naka-civilian clothes kaya hindi malaman kung saang school sila galing,” the student told the Varsitarian.

UST security chief Joseph Badinas said several angles were being pursued by investigators, such as “fraternity wars.”

The FEU student also said tighter security has been implemented in the Morayta campus following the incident, with security guards doing extensive inspections.  With reports from C.M.T.G.V. and R.D.M.


  1. I say there should be a university-wide advisory recommending all Thomasians to dismiss any non-essential travel in any FEU campus since we all know how dim-wittedly violent FEU students are, which is what they’re only ever good at apart from wasting their lives away with computer games like DotA
