MANILA, Philippines - An 11-year-old girl who saw her father hitting her mother stabbed him to death in Argao, Cebu over the weekend, police said. 

Senior Supt. Patricinio Comendador, provincial police chief of Cebu, said the girl, whose name is being withheld as she is a minor, saw her mother being attacked by her father inside their home in Barangay Canbanua at around 11 p.m. Sunday.

Reports show that the father hit the mother with a 2x2 piece of wood and even tried to saw off the mother's leg. 

Seeing this, the girl grabbed a knife and stabbed her father in the left breast, causing him to bleed to death.

The fight between the girl's parents reportedly started over the man's alleged womanizing.

The girl is now in the custody of the local Department of Social Welfare and Development in Argao.
