CEBU, Philippines - A salesman of a distillery company lost P30,000 cash to two unidentified robbers who held him at a gunpoint Wednesday afternoon in Barangay Abucayan, Balamban town.

Jullier Luzano reported to the police that the armed robbers who were using a motorcycle held him up while he was dealing with a customer at past 1 p.m.

The victim said he was at a store when one of the robbers pointed a gun at him and declared a holdup. The robber then took his sling bag, which contained P30,000 cash.

One of the robbers was reportedly wearing black bonnet, black jacket and black maong pants while the other one, who served as the lookout, was wearing a red jacket and black maong pants.

They were armed with undetermined caliber of firearms and sped off towards Barangay Poblacion, eluding police arrest.

Burglars Hits Church

 Meanwhile, unidentified burglars broke into the Iglesia ni Cristo Church in Sibonga town and took a 40-inch flat screen television set early Wednesday morning.

Church Minister Jeffrey Arroyo, 40, told the police he discovered that the door at the westside of the church was open and the television set placed next to the podium was already missing.

Initial investigation conducted by Sibonga police revealed that the door was forcibly opened using a sharp object.

The burglars then stole the television set worth P30,000, which is reportedly owned by church member Rufino Rosete Jr.

The police believe that the burglars climbed through the concrete fence at the back of the church and escaped through the same area after taking their loot. (FREEMAN)
