The 30-year-old impoverished man temporarily lived together with his wife and three children at the home of his brother-in-law Victor Kinawalan in sitio Kaharta. Around 2 a.m. on the aformentioned date he took a bolo and attacked the other sleeping occupants in the house, killing in the process his entire family, as well as his sister Renesia, and two of her children, and also seriously wounded Renesia's daughter Jessa.
When Victor Kinawalan became aware of the attack he tried to stop Langobon, but was overpowered and fled to seek help from his neighbours. Langobon eventually escaped from the crime scene and hid in a nearby forest, but was captured several hours later after a search operation by the Siayan municipal police and the 6th Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army.
During his interrogation Langobon stated that he had lost his mind, because of his difficulties to feed his family, and wanted to end it all. He also revealed that he felt hatred against the world, because he was called crazy by the people in the community, after being sick with typhoid fever several years prior.
