MANILA, Philippines - Three alleged members of the Akyat-Bahay gang including a 19-year-old female student who tried to rob a condominium unit in Pasay City early morning of Good Friday, were arrested by the police.

Tagao immediately asked help from his colleagues who immediately called up the police.

A team led by Senior Police Officer 2 Christian Marquez proceeded to the area and apprehended the three suspects.
