Case investigator PSSg. Renalyn Layugan relates that according to the victims, the suspects went to Sandi-uy and asked one of the victims, who was sweeping the floor, if they are selling cigarettes, while his companion went to the cashier.

The two suddenly declared a ‘hold-up’, demanding of their collection.

“Isunga gapu iti fear, intudo na diay ayan iti collection da. Inala da diay collection a more or less P2,000,” she said.
