Former model-actor Leo Rabago arrested for frustrated homicide

Leo Rabago photoFormer model and bold star Leo Rabago, 45, was arrested by police last Sunday evening for
stabbing the live-in partner of his sister Gigi Ruiz, 36, in Pasig City.

As reported on ABS-CBN earlier today, Rabago repeatedly stabbed the guy who was identified as Felipe Malonzo, 36.

Malonzo luckily survived, but it is still not good to hear for Rabago.

"Sana mamatay na lang siya" is what all Rabago could say about Malonzo who, according to Rabago, was abusive of his sister.

Rabago is facing the case of "frustrated homicide".


Back in the 80's, Rabago was the first ever winner of BodyShots bikini competition.

He later starred in a number of films (some are bold movies) such as Lakas at Pag-ibig (with Daisy Reyes), Alipin ng Tukso (with the late Halina Perez), Kamay ni Eva (with Alma Concepcion), Shirley (with Aya Medel and Rita Magdalena), Campus Scandal (with Piel Morena), Hapdi ng Tag-init (with Ana Capri), Wating (with Richard Gomez), Ayoko Na Sanang Magmahal (with Gabby Concepcion) and the internationally-screened Pangarap ng Puso (with Ms. Hilda Koronel and Matet de Leon).

Leo was also one of the founding members of the Philippine Professional Models Association of the Philippines or PMAP.
