MANILA, Philippines – Reigning Miss Philippines-Earth Angelee Delos Reyes, her boyfriend, and two other friends were victimized by riding-in-tandem suspects at a Chinese restaurant in San Juan last Saturday night.
The beauty queen and her group were eating along with Miss Philippines-Fire Alma Casabal when they were robbed.
Video from closed circuit television (CCTV) showed that Delos Reyes’ boyfriend, Yussef Esteves, was standing at the sidewalk when he was approached by a man who disembarked from a motorcycle.
Esteves thought about fighting back but changed his mind as the suspect was armed.
One of their friends was able to recognize the suspect.
The group believes the suspects were already observing them as the CCTV video showed that the black motorcycle had already passed them once before returning to rob them.
The suspects got away with a bag containing two cellphones as well as keys to the victims’ condo.
Police conducted check points in San Juan but were unable to nab the suspects. -- Report from Zandro Ochona, DZMM.
