The suspect in a hold up incident which took place in Pasay City on January 1, 2017 have surrendered to authorities. This came about after a CCTV footage showing the suspect’s face and the actual hold upping incident went viral on social media.
The footage showed the suspect as he pointed his gun at the woman victim who was about to climb the stairs of an overpass. In a matter of seconds, the suspect was able to take the victim’s mobile phones and cash and sped away with an accomplice via a motorcycle.
The victim then posted on social media a footage from the barangay’s CCTV; hoping to get a lead as to the identity of the suspect. Her efforts proved successful.
After the suspect’s family saw him in the news, the mother of the suspect – whose name turned out to be Ernesto Fajardo – disclosed that rather than hide their kin, they decided to surrender him to the proper authorities.
