Cab driver choked, robbed
by Ofelia C. Empian

Another case of robbery and violence victimizing a taxi driver was reported in the evening of Feb. 6 along Ambiong Road, Barangay Ambiong, La Trinidad, Benguet.

Police personnel based in Barangay Beckel accompanied taxi operator and driver Restituto Bautista, 52, to the Police Regional Office-Cordillera at about 12:30 a.m. of Feb. 7 to report the incident.

Bautista reported that the three suspects are male – one was wearing a black leather jacket while the two wore sweatshirt.

Bautista stated at that about 10 p.m. of the same date,, the suspects, allegedly under the influence of alcohol, flagged him down along Magsaysay.

They told Bautista to bring them to Beckel, La Trinidad but when they reached  the Beckel-Lamut-Shilan Junction Road, one of the suspects directed him to maneuver the taxi to Ambiong, where the crime was committed.

One of the suspects, who was seated behind him, choked the victim and uttered the words: “Ited mo amin nga birok mo,” while the other suspect held his right arm.

Because of fear, the victim handed P2,800 collection to the suspects, who immediately fled.

The police report stated that the victim could not identify the suspects because the area was unlit and the light inside the taxi was switched off.

The La Trinidad police tried to arrest the suspects but they were unsuccessful.

The case is under investigation.
