MANILA, Philippines – One passenger was injured in what police said was a robbery inside a bus in Mandaluyong City early Monday morning.

Details about the injured passenger have yet to be gathered as of press time, but police chief Senior Supt. Florendo Quibuyen said the man was knifed when he refused to yield his belongings to around five men, who had boarded the air-conditioned Miami bus plying Edsa around 4 a.m.

Quibuyen said the five assailants figured in the city’s rogue gallery, but did not give their names yet.

A follow-up operation was ongoing as of press time, he said.

    uncertain times.
    spend a moment of silence
    at the beginning of each day;
    you never know if you get to your destination
    or return home safely;
    terrorists, criminals and perverts are on the loose.

    if only the PNP can provide enough personnel as marshals to go after these crooks and just kill them on the spot if they resist arrest, period.

    Our people are use to this kind of crime which happen almost everyday in different parts of the metropolis…the main reason why this crime goes on and on is our police force which are mostly not interested in catching these criminals unless it is high profile person is involved or the higher up is the one giving the orders to hot pursuit the criminals. For this reason the criminals in our society becomes more daring knowing that police response will be turtled slow , too late and sometimes no response at all. I hope our police force will setup special strategy to catch these criminals!

      I agree.. the police are “reactive” and not “proactive”..

      they dont try to prevent a crime.. they wait for it to happen first before reacting.
