Police officers patrolling the CCP complex noticed the commotion and responded.

The suspects did not resist arrest, police said.

Aside from the cash and gadgets taken from the victims, police recovered from the suspects a .38-caliber pistol, a hand grenade and bladed weapons.

The suspects will be charged with violation of the Commission on Elections gun ban, robbery and illegal possession of firearms and explosives.
