SM North EDSA & PC Home PH Issue Statements on Stabbing Incident

As law enforcers hunt for the computer technician who stabbed to death a customer inside SM City North EDSA, the managements of PC Home Philippines and SM North EDSA have issued official statements on the incident. Both vowed to cooperate with authorities in the speedy resolution of the case.

PC Home Service Center computer technician Leo Laab stabbed to death Geroldo Ramon Qurijero inside SM North EDSA Thursday after an altercation. Querijero reportedly tried to claim his laptop from the suspect but the latter refused because the victim did not bring his job order receipt. A heated argument ensued which turned physical.

WATCH: The incident was caught on video by PC Home’s CCTV camera.

In its statement, SM North EDSA said all efforts are being done to assure the safe of all its customers.

Meanwhile, PC Home Philippines said it does not tolerate such kind of behavior by its employees. Aside from cooperating with the authorities, PC Home said it will extend assistance to the victim’s relatives.
