In the early hours of the morning last Friday, April 7, three men robbed a woman who had just been dropped off in front of her house in Barangay Silangan in Cubao, Quezon City. The men snatched her bag and cellphone. The woman, though, decided to go after them as she cried for help.
A TV Patrol report reveals that barangay security officers quickly came to help and the three robbers were arrested. Upon their arrest, the victim herself retrieved her belongings from them.
CCTV footage shows that the three robbers were on board a tricycle that had been going through the neighborhoods in Cubao. When they saw the SUV, they decided to follow it. Then, once the woman had been dropped off and the SUV had sped away, the robbers pounced on her.
Barangay Silangan captain Jojo Nitro said that there have been reports of robbers in tricycles going around the area. They usually target people who are being dropped off or those who are walking alone.
The victim says she will pursue filing a case against the robbers.
