It seems that even passengers on board running vehicles are not safe from robbers nowadays.

Motorcycle-riding robbers snatched the handbag of a woman passenger who was on board a moving tricycle in Talungon, San Roque last Wednesday.

The victim was identified as Noemi Francisco, 47 years old, a resident of San Roque.

A police report disclosed that Francisco was riding on a tricycle heading towards their residence when one of two men on board a motorcycle suddenly grabbed her handbag.

Like a scene from an action movie, the motorcycle riding tandem swerved towards the right portion of the tricycle and one of the two suspects suddenly grabbed the woman’s bag.

The robbery took place while the two vehicles were in motion.

The suspect then sped away bringing with them the loot.

Francisco told police that her bag contained P40,000 in cash, two cellphones and other personal belongings.

The victim reported the incident to the Sta Maria Police Station.  (Dan Toribio)
