Posted on Mar 02 1999

Twenty-year old Kenneth Temol Purey Gag from Yap, and two Korean elderly women, Lockhart Bang Yung Kim and Chang Gab Du, were assaulted in separate occasions last weekend.

According to the police report, Gag and suspect Oscar Vincent Meeyong, were both attending a Saturday night bash off Chalan Kanoa which lasted until the wee hours in the morning.

Meeyong was reportedly upset after missing his bag that had betel nut. He left the party at 1 AM Sunday and came back after three hours.

In his return, he entered the victim’s room and assaulted him using a kitchen knife and portable cooler.

Gag sustained multiple contusion at the right side of this neck and down to his knee. He also had lacerations on his head, ears and hands.

Department of Public Safety Spokesperson Rose Ada said a call reporting the incident was made after 6 AM Sunday. Police officers arrested Meeyong at the scene and was detained at the Division of Correction.

Yesterday, the Superior Court posted a bail worth $5,000 for Meeyong and his charges include one count burglary, two counts for dangerous weapon and one count on disturbing the peace.

In a similar incident, Kim, 54 and Du, 42, were manning the Ace Game and Cafe Poker Game in Dandan when three unidentified men came in.

Based on the police report, the three men approached both women asking to change a $5 bill. After they were asked to present their identification cards, the two started to attack both women.

The three men, who were wearing dark-colored shirts, ran away with over $600, DPS said, leaving Kim and Du with contusion and bruises.

Meanwhile, the seven convicts who recently escaped from DOC appeared in court yesterday. While, William Sablan was conspicuously absent. However legal counsels, who were just recently appointed to represent some of the convicts, asked for time to consult with their clients. The next hearing is scheduled Monday next week.
