Jeron Teng now recovering at home following stabbing incident

Alaska Aces rookie Jeron Teng is in stable condition after sustaining multiple stab wounds during a parking lot melee at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City last Sunday.

Teng took to Twitter Friday afternoon to express his gratitude to everyone who prayed for him in the aftermath of the incident that saw him get stabbed thrice in the back a few hours after Alaska beat GlobalPort in the PBA.

He was rushed to St. Luke's Hospital. Fortunately, his vital organs were missed.

Rain or Shine big man Norbert Torres and former La Salle guard Thomas Torres also suffered stab wounds during the altercation, with the latter expected to be out for six weeks.

"First of all, I would like to thank my family, friends and supporters for all the prayers. Last June 3, I suffered from multiple stabs wounds and deep lacerations which could have been fatal," Teng said on his Twitter account @jeronteng on Friday.

Right now, the Alaska rookie is resting at home. He is being closely monitored by the doctors as well as his family.

"I am focusing on my recovery with the help of my family and friends," he said.

There is still no timetable for the return of former La Salle star. But it is likely that he will miss the rest of the ongoing Commissioner's Cup where the Aces have roared to a 5-1 start.

Investigation is still ongoing, with two suspects already in police custody.
