2 motorcyle-riding men rob Malaysian national in Makati
Police identified the victim as Harvinder Singh Gurnam Singh, a BPO company employee in Taguig City who is currently staying at Manila Peninsula Hotel at the corner of Ayala and Makati avenues.
The crime happened at the corner of Rada and Legaspi Streets, San Lorenzo village around 9 p.m., police said.
Singh said the men took away company-owned gadgets, such as Samsung Galaxy cell phones and a camera, a Le Novo notebook, headphones and an Apple iPad. The robbers also made off with his cash money worth more than P43,000 and a gold chain.
Case investigator Senior Police Officer 1 Romeo G. Peñaflor said that two men pretended to be lost and approached Singh to ask him for directions. Suddenly, one of them pointed a knife and forced him to surrender his belongings.
Singh did not recognize the men because the street was dimly lit. Noli Ermitano, Philippine Daily Inquirer
