Two security guards were injured after a grenade thrown by a man during a fit of jealousy went off at a ranch in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon, on Tuesday, police reported.

Injured were Heusterio Magana and Richard Shaymanlao, both guards at the Lorenzo Ranch in Brgy. Dalirig, according to a report from the Bukidnon provincial police.

The explosion occurred around 9:50 a.m. at the ranch’s gate.

One Christopher Haton, a resident of Brgy. Dalirig, was seen hurling the grenade 20 meters away from the gate before the blast, according to the report.

Investigation indicated that Haton became jealous and angry after seeing the security guards glancing at his wife, so he lobbed a grenade at them.

Magana suffered wounds to his abdomen because of the blast, while Shaymanlao sustained wounds to the buttocks.

Both guards were taken to the Bukidnon Provincial Hospital Annex in Manolo Forthich for treatment. (John Roson)
