The men then ordered him to take off his upper clothing and enter the house.

He also saw the men use his upper clothing to cover the open wounds of their injured companions.

At around 12pm La Paz Barangay Chairwoman Arcelita Dalingay reported the incident to police.

Ayala Police Station personnel swooped down on the area but failed to confront the armed men.  (Dan Toribio)
