“In a recent phone interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Senior Superintendent Manuel Lukban, Makati police chief, has admitted that his men have been having difficulty preventing robberies along Chino Roces Avenue because criminals have managed to outwit policemen,” reports Niña Calleja in Philippine Daily Inquirer.
Lukban was quoted as saying, “This is our predicament. The robbers can study our movements because our patrolling police officers can easily be identified. It’s our weakness. They can easily identify us. It’s impossible to have our policemen posted in every corner of the road.”
Lukban was reacting to the series of robberies in jeepneys plying Chino Roces Avenue (Pasong Tamo). The report revealed that among the latest victims was Kenneth del Rosario, a special features writer of the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
The report revealed: “In two incidents happening two days apart, Del Rosario fell victim to a robbery hold-up in a jeepney and then witnessed a robber stab a resisting victim with an ice pick.”
Del Rosario was robbed while he was on a jeepney going to the MRT station in Magallanes on June 25 at 3:30pm.
