Man arrested in foiled robbery

September 05, 2019

ONE of the four suspected members of “Akyat-Bahay” gang was arrested by police after he grabbed by the neck a 14-year-old boy who prevented the robbery when the boy called the attention of the house owner Wednesday evening in Malabon City.

Marjhun Bargola, 25, of Blk 10, Lot 11, Lapu-Lapu St. in Bgy. Longos, will be charged for violation of R.A 7610 or the Anti-Child Abuse Law and Batas Pambansa Blg. 6 for illegal possession of deadly weapon.

Rey (not his real name) and his 14-year-old classmate “Mary” were walking home on Salmon Street when they saw Bargola and his cohorts peeping through the house of their supposed victim.

The two called the attention of the house owner but they were chased by Bargola  and “Rey” was grabbed. “Mary” sought the help of her parents who in turn sought police assistance that resulted in the arrest of the suspect.
