Two Filipino men who suffered serious wounds after being stabbed at Edinburgh Place in Central on Jan 30 have been released from hospital after giving their statements to the police.

They are also set to identify their attacker in an identification parade to be conducted by police investigators, the prosecution said in Eastern Court today, Mar 16.

The prosecutor briefed the court as the suspect, 35-year-old domestic helper Mark Gregor G. Baldomaro, appeared before Magistrate Peter Law for an update on his case.

He is facing two counts of wounding for the attacks on Tirso Fernandez Jr, 36, and his friend, Reginald M. Aguilar, 33. He was arrested on Jan 31 in Central.

Doctors at Queen Mary Hospital in Pok Fu Lam who treated Fernandez and Aguilar said their wounds are healing, the prosecutor said. 

Fernandez was said to have sustained a stab wound in his abdomen while Aguilar was hit in his chest and abdomen, prompting the doctors to keep him in the intensive care unit longer than the other victim.


Prosecutors asked for a four-week adjournment of the case, saying they still need to obtain medical reports on the two alleged victims.

They also opposed the granting of bail to Baldomaro, who glanced from time to time at the gallery where his wife, co-workers and friends sat as they attended his hearing for a second time.



However, the defense lawyer said his client was not applying for bail and did not object to the adjournment, which Magistrate Law scheduled for Apr 13.

In the meantime, the magistrate ordered the defendant to be remanded in custody.



The prosecutor said Baldomaro worked for the same employer as his wife at The Leighton Hill on Broadwood Road, Happy Valley. He and fellow driver Fernandez know each other while both their wives work as domestic helpers.

In the previous hearing on Feb 2, the prosecution said investigators were still trying to determine the type of weapon used and the motive for attacks.
