MANILA, Philippines - A 22-year-old Pakistani student was hit on the head with a beer bottle by his neighbor in Singalong, Manila yesterday.

Albagami Waleed Wagitash told police he had just gotten out of a taxi at around 5 a.m. when his neighbor, Jimmy Paul Llimit, talked to him in Filipino.

“He did not understand what was being said, then his neighbor suddenly hit him on the head with a beer bottle,” said barangay watchman Arnold Merina, who accompanied the Pakistani to Manila Police District yesterday afternoon.

Merina said Llimit’s motive has yet to be established but from what he heard, Wagitash reportedly offended someone in their neighborhood.

Wagitash was brought to Philippine General Hospital, where his wounds were treated. He will file charges against Llimit, Medina said.
