Ruiz, who said he met Rivero via Facebook five months ago, is now under police custody.
Authorities were able to find the knife Ivan used to stab Ricky. It was hidden in a firetruck at the barangay hall.
The suspect is now in the custody of the police. Meanwhile, reports say Ricky is now in a stable condition at the St. Luke's Medical Center, Quezon City since his stab wounds were not that deep.
The case is now under police investigation.
