“Panawagan ko, kayong lima, sumuko na kayo. Kung mahal ninyo ang inyong mga sarili, sumuko na kayo. Yo’n lang naman (I am begging you to surrender. If you love yourself, you will surrender. That’s all),” Moreno said in a press briefing with Police Brig. Gen. Vicente Danao, chief of the Manila Police District, on Friday.

“Ang payo ko tumigil na kayo sa criminal activities. [Kung] hindi niyo pakinggan ang payo ko, wag niyo namang gawin sa Maynila.. Dahil kahit sa kasulok-sulukan ng mundong ito, hahanapin namin kayo,” he added.

(Take my advice, stop doing criminal activities. If you don’t want to listen, then don’t do it in Manila because we will hunt you down wherever you are).

Moreno also reiterated the local government’s offer of a P1 million reward for any information that would lead to the arrest of the suspects.

“Money is just money, we’ll go after you. We’ll put a price in your head. So I hope nagkakaunawaan tayo (So I hope we understand each other),” he further said.

On Thursday morning, unidentified men robbed Metrobank’s Binondo branch, but the amount of the stolen money has yet to be determined.

Police Brig. Gen. Vicente Danao, chief of the Manila Police District, said they are still in the process of establishing the identity of the robbers. /ee
