Three suspected holduppers were arrested minutes after they robbed a pedestrian along Sevilla St. at dawn last Saturday.

Arrested were Nurjimar Burong, 20, of Arena Blanco, Nash Edding, 18, of Sta. Barbara and Khalil Ammad, 16, of Rio Hondo.

Initial investigation disclosed that Leonard Moore was walking along Sevilla St. around 1:35 a.m. when three men appeared and asked him for a cigarette. But the three suddenly grabbed Moore’s wristwatch at knife point then ran away.

At this point, Moore sought the assistance of policemen of the Patrol Section who were detailed along Lorenzo St.

A hot pursuit operation came that resulted in the arrest of the three suspects. Confiscated from their possession were a kitchen knife and the stolen wristwatch.

The suspects were brought to the central police station where they were detained for the filing of charges in court. – Dan Toribio Jr.
