Lumenda said he rushed to the area and saw the creature grabbing his child, who was able to escape. Neighbors woke up due to the commotion.

The creature is described to have long hair and nails, blazing eyes and long fangs.

It was also learned that the goats of Lumenda's neighbor was devoured by the creature. Twenty residents claimed witnessing this before the creature disappeared.

Meanwhile, another aswang attack was reported, this time on one alias Juvy, a resident of the barangay.

Juvy showed bite marks on the hand and scratches on the shoulder, which were said to have been inflicted by the aswang.

Mayor Lester Sinsuat is urging members of the Citizen Armed Forces Geographical Units and barangay tanods to patrol the area at night and keep a tight watch over residents. (Edgardo Fuerzas)

Aswang sa Datu Odin, Maguindanao, 3 araw ng wala
13 MAY 2012


TATLONG gabi nang hindi umaatake sa Barangay Makir, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao ang aswang na di umano’y gumagala sa lugar, ayon kay Barangay Chairman Norodin Abas naniniwala s’ya na aswang ang naturang nilalang, hindi rin ito magnanakaw tulad ng sinabi ni DOS Mayor Lester Sinsuat, hindi na rin kasi anya nakakapambiktima ang mga magnanakaw simula nang umatake sa lugar ang tinatawag nilang “Maning.”

Una rito ay nabulabog at nabalot ang naturang barangay dahil sa umanoy pagsalakay ng aswang sa lugar kung saan dalawang beses itong nambiktima.

Patuloy pa din hinahanap at tinutugis ng mga residente sa lugar ang nasabing nilalang na ilang araw na din umanong pagala-gala sa kanilang lugar.(JR MAE AVILA)
Aswang in Datu Odin, Maguindanao, 3 days gone


It's been three nights passed, and the monster isn't attacking any more in Barangay Makir, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao. Barangay Chairman Norodin Abas believe that it was an aswang roaming in the village, not a thief like what DOS Mayor Lester Sinsuat told. Thieves also stopped victimizing when this monster they called Maning attacks in the said place.

The first reason might be the disturbance and fear the monster had caused to the Barangay wherein two victims were attacked.

But until now, residents were still chasing and searching this monster who was said to roam in the whole place.
