(UPDATE) Beauty queen turned character actress Pilar Pilapil, whose real name is Delilah Veloso, was stabbed in a carjacking incident late Thursday evening.
Pilapil, 60, and her female companion, identified as a certain Roselle Rosalem, were cruising along the Marikina Riverbanks on Thursday night when their vehicle, a gold Kia car, was stopped by three motorcycle-riding armed men, who then commandeered their vehicle, police said.
Pilapil was then stabbed and thrown out of the vehicle onto a vacant lot in Piedra Blanca Homes in Antipolo City. Reports said the whereabouts of Rosalem remained unknown.
Rosalem was the driver of the carjacked vehicle.
