Family driver robs boss at gunpoint
A MATORN in Maria Luisa Subdivision was robbed at gunpoint allegedly by her family driver inside her house in Cebu City.
Angeles Mathieu, 78, identified the suspect as Jonathan Forosuelo, Jr., 25, a native of Clarin, Misamis Occidental.

Mathieu was in her room in the family’s two-story house in the exclusive subdivision when an armed Forosuela barged in around 6 a.m. Saturday.
Police said the driver covered the woman’s mouth to prevent her from shouting before taking the jewelry.

The victim’s wallet containing ATM card was recovred in the car.
An operation to arrest the driver is in progress, police said./ Tweeny M. Malinao
