A holdupper was arrested by vigilant folks after he held up a woman who had just withdrawn money from a bank ATM machine along Canelar last Wednesday night.

Leah Grace Sta. Maria, 21, single of Gov. Alvarez  St. had just withdrawn money from an ATM machine around 7:30 p.m. and was leaving the place, when Bernon Malanao, 26, of Canelar appeared and announced a holdup  at knife point.

Leah Grace told the police that Malanao seized her bag after cutting its sling with the knife he was holding.

The Malanao then ran towards Boholano Drive in Camino Nuevo but was cornered by some bystanders.

The stolen bag containing money and some valuables and the knife were recovered from the suspect’s possession.

Malanao was then brought to the Central Police Station for filing of charges. – Dan Toribio Jr.
