A GASO­LINE sta­tion at Ali­jis Road, Barangay Sing­cang-air­port in Ba­colod City was robbed by two uniden­ti­fied rid­ing-in-tan­dem suspects yes­ter­day dawn.

Po­lice Ma­jor Charles Gever, chief of Po­lice Sta­tion 8, said the two suspects, who were on board a Rusi mo­tor­cy­cle, had re­fu­elled their mo­tor­cy­cle at Ori­ent Fuel at about 3:30 a.m.

In­ves­ti­ga­tion showed that one of the suspects, who was wear­ing sando and short, asked the Ori­ent Fuel em­ployee if he can use their wa­ter so he can wash his feet.

Upon sens­ing that no­body was look­ing at him, the sus­pect im­me­di­ately en­tered the cashier’s room and de­clared hold-up, po­lice records showed.

Den­nis Raz, 28, a cashier of Ori­ent Fuel, told the po­lice that the sus­pect pointed at him a bladed weapon and de­clared hold-up.

One of the suspects was also stand­ing be­side the pump boy Marcelo Tarogo, 18.

The suspects carted away P79,000 in cash and fled to­wards south di­rec­tion of Ali­jis Road.

Gever said the gaso­line sta­tion has no se­cu­rity guard and no closed cir­cuit tele­vi­sion (CCTV) camera.

He said they are still con­duct­ing fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion to de­ter­mine the iden­tity of the suspects.
