A salesman and his driver were robbed Tuesday afternoon in Elenita Heights, Catalunan Grande.
SPO1 Harold Delima of the Talomo Police station identified the victims as Nielben Sabang Tan, 23, a sales agent of PMFTC Inc. and a resident of R.Castillo Street Agdao; and his driver Jesse Quiroben Gallerde of Samal, Davao Del Norte.
The two victims were about to deliver cigarette stocks to a store when suddenly a man wearing a black helmet, approached them and declared a hold-up.
The man, who wore a black jacket and dark jeans and was about 5’7″ in height, had boarded a motorcycle without a plate number. Upon alighting from his motorcycle, the man pulled out a chrome-colored firearm and declared a hold-up.
The two robbers carted away some P30,000 before speeding away.
In an interview with Police Chief Inspector Oliver Navales, station commander of the Talomo Police station, he said that when they asked the victims to pinpoint the suspect in their “rogues gallery,” the latter’s face did not appear on any line-up.
“Tan aw nato bag-o ni sya na suspect, kay wala man sa atong “rogues gallery” ang hitsura sa suspek nga naghold-up sa biktima,” Navales said.
The Talomo Police station further said that the said kind of incident was long been addressed after they conducted patrols in the subdivisions and other interior areas under their jurisdiction.
