MANILA, Philippines — Four suspected motorcycle-riding robbers were arrested in separate operations  in Quezon City, police said yesterday.

“They will not stop until they are arrested,” Chief Superintendent Guillermo Eleazar, Quezon City Police District director, said in a press briefing in the QCPD headquarters at Camp Karingal.

John Paul Aquino, who has two arrest warrants for robbery and violation of Republic Act 10591 or the Comprehensive Law on Firearms and Ammunition, was apprehended in Barangay Ugong, Valenzuela City at around 7 a.m. Monday.

Two other suspects with the same modus operandi are Wency Compenido, 19, and John Christopher Ramirez, 26, who were arrested in Barangay Project 6 at around 5 p.m. last Saturday.

Police Officer 2 Jomar Madarang  said he saw the suspects pull out a firearm and about to rob a woman.

“I went back and asked them if they are residents in the area. I also asked for the driver’s license but he wasn’t able to present any,” Madarang said in an interview with reporters.

Madarang is being hailed as a hero for arresting the two suspects. Seized from the suspects are a .38 caliber revolver, a gun replica, a hand grenade, three cell phones and a stolen motorcycle.

“It seems they wanted to fight back,” said Madarang.

Eleazar said the three suspects have been implicated in at least eight robberies within the jurisdiction of the Masambong police station.
