Men of the Ayala police station under Supt. Albert Larubis arrested a habal-habal driver who was tagged as the gunman who shot and wounded two brothers at dawn last Wednesday.

Police identified the suspect as Mohammad Sarah y Liwasag, 22, of Purok 1, Talisayan. He was arrested during a follow-up operation and was positively identified by the victims themselves as the one who shot them.

Police said the victims Nolie Altak, 24, and his brother Rodnir Altak, 22, pointed to Sarah as the gunman who shot them.

Sarah was detained at the Ayala Police Station for filing of charges against him in court.  

The two Altaks were drinking in a store when they figured in an argument with two other men who were also drinking.

The Altaks were later walking on their way home when unidentified men blocked their path and shot them.

The victims recognized Sarah as the one who shot them. – Dan Toribio Jr.
