A Grade 9 student from the Ramon Avancenia High School was arrested the other day for allegedly attempting to steal a Honda scooter parked at the Dentistry Science Building of the Centro Escolar University located along Concepcion Aguila near the corner of Rafael Street in San Miguel, Manila.
Now in the custody of the Manila Police District-Anti- Carnapping Section is Juhary Casan, alias ‘Pogi’, 19, a Muslim, of 980 Arlegui St., Quiapo, Manila. He was charged with violation of the Anti-Carnapping Law of 1972 before the Manila Prosecutor’s Office by victim Yves Louise Rebulado, 19, a student at the CEU and residing in Pandacan, Manila.
A probe by PO2 Ryan Paculan of the MPD-ANCAR showed that the incident took place at around 11:45 a.m. The suspect was reportedly caught in the act by lady guard Sabrina Jean Melic while already trying to start the scooter (4782 XP).
The said guard immediately nabbed the suspect and brought him to the security office. The victim was then sought out from his classroom, informed that his scooter almost got stolen and was asked to go to the security office where the suspect was also taken.
The suspect, meantime, told police that his female batchmate, whom he identified only as ‘Aiza’, gave him the key of the scooter so he could steal it.
