MANILA, Philippines - Robbers riding tandem on motorcycles stabbed a 20-year-old woman studying medicine and shot dead an Arab businessman in Tondo, Manila hours apart yesterday.

Mary Roxanne Musngi, of Gagalangin , Tondo, a student of the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila and reportedly the granddaughter of a former senior police aide of Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim, was declared dead on arrival at the Tondo Medical Center.

According to Police Officer 3 Jaime Gonzales Jr., Musngi was on her way home at past 3 a.m. after a group study when she was blocked by three men riding tandem on a motorcycle at the corner of Gen. Lukban and Juan Luna streets.

Two of the men alighted and grabbed her bag. The victim tried to resist, but one of the suspects stabbed her repeatedly. The suspects fled when she fell.

PO3 Rommel del Rosario checked if the suspects were caught on video by a close-circuit television camera installed along Pritil street, but unfortunately the spy camera had not functioned for the past several months.

Del Rosario said they have four minors who could provide the police with leads to track the suspects, but police “still need the approval and cooperation of their parents.”

I think I saw from the news 24 Oras that the CCTV was functional afterall and the suspected perpetrators were recently captured. http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleId=597275&publicationSubCategoryId=65 reports that indeed suspects were arrested. Group study at night till wee hours of the morning is I think a common practice among medical students but the streets are not safe anymore.
