Inquirer.net reports that a 7-Eleven store along Pioneer Street in Mandaluyong City was robbed by two men at around 4:20 a.m. on Monday, September 19.
The report quoted Senior Police Officer 1 Joemer Puzon who revealed that witnesses had described the robbers as "good-looking" and "well-dressed." One man was said to be around 5'7" to 5'8' and the other around 5'3" to 5'4." Both were of medium build and brown complexions. Armed with handguns, the men pointed a gun at security guard Rexie Sison. Then, Puzon disclosed that "one of them disarmed the guard and hit him with the gun in the head."
The guard, two cashiers, and two customers were then forced inside the store’s backroom while assistant manager Christina Pozon was ordered to open the cash vault at gunpoint. The perpetrators emptied the vault and the cash register machine of money, allegedly amounting to P300,000. They also took several phone cards worth P15,000.
Unfortunately, the store did not have a closed-circuit television or CCTV camera installed. As such, the police are finding it difficult to identify the assailants.
