A delivery van driver of a multinational manufacturer of personal and home products was seriously injured after he shot it out with two motorcycle-riding criminals in broad daylight robbery in San Juan City the other day.
Reports gathered at the San Juan Police said victim Joemil Jaos, van driver of Proctor and Gamble Company (PGC), sustained gunshot wounds in the face and is now confined at San Juan Medical Center.
Senior Supt. Virgilio Villoria, San Juan police deputy chief for administration (DCOPA), said the incident took place along San Gabriel St., Bgy. San Perfecto, at around 11:10 a.m.
Investigators said that prior to the incident, Jaos was in the area to deliver personal and household care products at Baby’s store on San Gabriel St.
When he was about to return to his parked vehicle, a Nissan Urvan (MT-2154), after the delivery, two unidentified suspects riding a red motorcycle suddenly appeared.
One of the suspects approached the victim and at gunpoint declared a holdup but the latter resisted, prompting the suspect to fire twice on his face.
When the victim fell down, the suspects took his shoulder bag containing P400, personal IDs & ATM card then sped away toward F. Blumentritt Street.
Villoria said a witness, identified as Ronnie C. Bulgan Jr. and the victim himself identified one of the suspects through police rogue gallery as Marcelo Tampoco Onate Jr.
The official said Onate has a pending arrest warrant issued by the Pasig City Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 160 for robbery.
