The members of CIDG-QC led by Chief Insp. Garman Manabat also arrested the other suspects, Rodolfo dela Cruz, 25, and Edmundo Sarmiento, 23.

Case investigator SPO2 Ador Robles of the Makati police said the suspects robbed Raj Bring, an Indian national involved in microlending business, of P54,300 cash in Palanan.

But they were confronted by members of the CIDG-QC, police said.

Earlier in the day, the suspects divested another Indian national of cash in Pasay City.

According to Senior Supt. Jerry Umayao, Makati police chief, the four suspects have a standing complaint by a previous victim, Ras Bring, a 57-year-old Indian national, and a resident of Sta. Ana, Manila.

He said the suspects were involved in a series of robberies in Manila, Pasay and Makati.
