MANILA, Philippines – Three suspected robbers victimized bus passengers along EDSA in Makati on Monday.

Moises Ballesteros, driver of Jackpherlyn Transport bus (ESU 370), said the 3 suspects boarded the bus near Estrella Street along EDSA’s northbound lane and immediately declared a robbery.

Ballesteros said the robbers took off with the valuables, including cash and cellphones, of 9 passengers. The suspects then transferred to a Victory Liner bus with body number 1890.

MMDA traffic personnel stationed in the area were able to alert the authorities, but the suspects were already gone when police inspected the bus in Cubao.

The Jackpherlyn Bus came from Baclaran in Parañaque, and was bound for Faiview in Quezon City. – report from Henry Atuelan, dzMM
