A female motorcyclist lost her cellphone to riding in tandem robbers last Sunday, the same day two men robbed a department store of several pieces of jewelry.

The victim was identified as Joeana Alejandro y Dela Cruz, 21, single and a resident of Luyahan, Pasonanca.

Alejandro and her mother were backriders on a motorcycle driven by her brother and travelling along Canelar Road at around 1:30pm when the incident occurred.

One of two men riding tandem on another motorcycle suddenly grabbed Alejandro’s cellphone while in motion.

The victim along with her companions then proceeded to the Central Police Station to file a formal complaint.

Just an hour before the incident, three men broke into a downtown department store and stole assorted pieces of jewelry before shocked spectators.

One of the motorcycles used by the suspects and their jackets were found abandoned along Alvarez Drive.  (Dan Toribio)
