3 Chinese nationals arrested for robbing fellow Chinese
Police have arrested 3 Chinese men for stealing P2 million from fellow Chinese in Paranaque City on Monday night.
According to the Southern Police District, the suspects abducted 24-year-old Zhang Huai Zhen, a grocery salesman living in Pasay City.
The victim met with the suspects because he saw their online ad for a cheap exchange rate or exchange of pesos and Chinese yuan.
The victim told the police that they conducted a transaction with the 4 men in Sta. Ana Street corner of Daang Batang in Bgy. Moonwalk around 10 p.m.
In the middle of it, a suspect suddenly sprayed chili spray on his eyes and stole his bag containing P2-million cash.
Barangay Moonwalk guards arrested 3 fleeing men aged 25, 31, and 32.
But one escaped with the bag and money.
Recovered from the detainees were 2 .45 caliber, a .38 caliber gun, as well as used chili spray.
