MANILA, Philippines - The suspect in the violent attack of a woman in Balintawak, Quezon City apparently attempted to rob an apartelle before committing the crime for which he was arrested for.

The staff of Balintawak Apartelle said suspect Erwin Salinas drew out a knife and joked about robbing the establishment.

Police said after the incident in the apartelle, Salinas headed to a nearby bakery, where he attacked and robbed victim "Kaylie."

Salinas was able to take P7,000 from the bakery. However, authorities are still clueless as to where the money went even as the suspect was immediately arrested after the mauling.

Salinas is now under police custody and is facing various charges.
