CEBU, Philippines - A salesman lost P50,000 to two unidentified robbers yesterday afternoon in Barangay Pitalo, San Fernando.

Jerry Torcende, 30, of Tipolo, Mandaue City, delivery salesman of Mighty Tobacco Corporation, was found by his fellow employees Ricky Torcende, 22, his brother, and Adonis Cajes, 24, padlocked inside the delivery van.

The robbers were allegedly wearing bonnets and armed with unknown caliber of firearm.

The victims reported the incident to the barangay hall in Pitalo. The officials then reported the incident to the police. — (FREEMAN)
