Dela Rosa said the suspects tried to extort money from Allan Medina, an engineer working for MAP Tractors Storage Co.

“The suspects earlier threatened, through text message and calls, the victim that if he would not give in to their demand of half a million pesos, his whole family will be killed,” dela Rosa said.
