MANILA - Five alleged members of 'Siksik Gang' were arrested Wednesday evening in Parañaque after one of their victims reported them to the police.

The suspects were identified as Renren Luna, Arvin Cainglit, Ramil Jugar, Christopher Fojas, and RJay Alas.

Authorities recovered two knives, an ice pick and the victim's mobile phone from the suspects.

They will be facing charges of robbery and illegal possession of deadly weapons. -- Jerome Lantin, ABS-CBN News
