A 35-year-old Filipino domestic worker appeared in Eastern Court this morning, charged with stabbing a fellow Filipino driver and his friend outside the public toilet at the City Hall carpark on Edinburgh Place on Saturday, Jan 30.

Mark Gregor G. Baldomaro was charged with two counts of wounding for the attacks on Tirso Fernandez Jr, 36, and his friend, Reginald M. Aguilar, 33, on Saturday evening.

Police said Baldomaro was arrested in Central the following day.

No plea was taken from Baldomaro, who works for the same employer as his wife at The Leighton Hill, 3 Broadwood Road, Happy Valley.

His wife was in the gallery along with some Filipino friends during the hearing of the case before Magistrate David Cheung.

According to the prosecutor, Baldomaro and Fernandez knew each other, being fellow drivers, while both their wives also worked as domestic helpers.


Baldomaro’s lawyer applied for bail for the defendant, who he said has a clear record and would stay with his wife in their employer’s house.

But the prosecutor opposed granting bail to Baldomaro, saying the charges against him are serious and there’s a risk he would abscond. Cheung agreed and denied bail.


The prosecutor said the younger victim, Aguilar, was still in intensive care at Queen Mary Hospital for treatment of his stab wounds in his chest and abdomen. The victim’s stab wounds could have a long-term effect on Aguilar’s health, the prosecutor said, citing the doctors’ assessment.

Meanwhile, Fernandez has been transferred to the general ward of the hospital, the prosecutor said.


Police said the attack happened at around 6:30pm last Saturday while Fernandez, his wife and Aguilar were at Edinburgh Place. The motive for the attack was still being determined by investigators.

A video footage circulated on Facebook following the stabbing showed Filipino workers who were near the scene frantically helping the victims as they lay wounded on the pavement while an ambulance was called.
