Two men lost their money and cell phones to two gunmen in Barangay Lunzuran at dawn last Friday.

Randy Gaitera, 30, of Phase 2, Lunzuran and a companion, whose identity was not mentioned in a police report, were riding a motorcycle heading home when they were held up by two men before 1 a.m.

Police said that when Gaitera and his companion were approaching Hangin Bukid, two men aboard another motorcycle blocked their path.

Gaitera told the police that the backrider suddenly pulled a .38 cal. revolver and announced a holdup at gunpoint.

The holduppers took from the victims P7,000, credit cards and two cell phones.

Gaitera and his companion told the police that the gunmen sped towards Tumaga after robbing them. They rushed to the police station to report the incident.

Police have mounted a hot pursuit operation but the holduppers were nowhere to be found. – Dan Toribio Jr.
