MANILA – Four alleged carjackers were arrested in Pasay City Tuesday evening.

The four suspects, identified as Nelson Castillo, Brian Legitimas, Victorio Nuas, and Roberto Gozon, were arrested on board a car and a stolen motorcycle along EDSA Extension.

Police said prior to the arrest, the suspects robbed a man of his motorcycle in Makati and used the stolen vehicle for snatching.

The suspects fired shots while they were pulling of the robbery. This prompted the Makati police to set up checkpoints.

The motorcycle and the sedan reached one of the checkpoints, resulting in a police chase that ended in Pasay City.

Police recovered three pistols and two bladed weapons from the suspects' car. One of the suspects on board the stolen motorcycle eluded arrest. – report from Jerome Lantin, ABS-CBN News
