Quezon City policemen arrested a suspect in a robbery hold-up incident Thursday night. The suspect, identified as Jessniel John Bulos, 32, was nabbed in Barangay Bagong Pag-asa. His alleged cohort, identified as “Jar-Ar” alias “Toto,” remains at large.
The robbery occurred at around 7:45 p.m. in front of a condo unit near EDSA. The victim, a taxi driver, was flagged down by the suspects who posed as passengers.
