The first victim, 29-year-old Quang Minh Tran, a Vietnamese-Australian, told authorities that he was talking on his cell phone when a riding-in-tandem couple aboard a black motorcycle grabbed his backpack.
The bag contained 200 Australian dollars, a Go-Pro camera, an iPad and an MX watch, all worth about $2,300.
The Fin was identified at 33-year-old Maura Numi. Shetold police that she was at Remedios Circle in Malate and was checking her map with a friend when she placed her backpack at her feet. Three men then closed in on her, issuing threats before grabbing her bag and running away.
Numi’s bag contained a camera, a laptop, a smartphone and other valuables worth about 1,000 Euros.
