CEBU CITY, Philippines – Policemen in Toledo City are investigating reports that at least 12 still unidentified individuals forcibly entered three homes in Sitio Tipolo, Barangay Bato and took cash and valuables amounting to over P300, 000.

The suspect, he said, threatened Montederamos and asked her to open the door.  He took her bag and cash amounting to P200.

Caadlawon said that the group them proceeded to nearby homes owned by Christine Amodia, 34, and Sherilyn Amodia, 27.

They also asked Christine and Sherilyn to open the doors of their homes while threatening to kill them.

Caadlawon said that one of the suspects also hit Christine with a short caliber firearm on her head.

They took from her home cash amounting to P120, 000; four cellular phones; three tablets; and various jewelry.
