One of 3 suspects in the robbery and killing of a 24-year-old Ateneo graduate student is still at large, police said Thursday. 

Authorities have arrested 2 suspects in the killing of grad student Francis de Leon in Barangay Concepcion, Marikina last week, said city police chief Senior. Supt. Roger Quesada. 

"Mayroon po tayong hinahanap pang 1. Mayroon na rin pong information na tinutumbok natin," he told radio DZMM. 

(We are still looking for one more suspect. There is relevant information that we are focusing on.) 

De Leon was found lifeless with chest and neck wounds just 5 minutes walking distance from his house on Friday. 

One suspect, identified as alias "Diablo", was arrested Wednesday at a checkpoint in Marikina after a witness claimed that he tried to sell De Leon's cellphone. 

A 16-year-old who allegedly connived with Diablo was also arrested and turned over to the social welfare department, police said.
