CEBU CITY, Philippines — Another robbery targeting taxi drivers took place in Metro Cebu on Maundy Thursday, April 14.

Off-duty first responders from Cebu City attended to a taxi driver who was left bleeding helplessly along the highway in Nivel Hills, Barangay Lahug after still unidentified assailants attacked him and stole his vehicle past 3 p.m. on Thursday.

 

Based on initial reports from the city’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS), the victim, whose identity is still being verified as of this writing, sustained multiple stab wounds on his body – on his chest, shoulder, arm, and sternum. 

The suspects also stole his taxi. 

This is the second robbery involving taxi drivers reported in Metro Cebu within a span of two days. 

Last Tuesday, April 12, a taxi driver was attacked by robbers in a secluded area in San Fernando town, south Cebu. 

The perpetrators stole the driver’s income worth at least P1,000, and even slit his tongue.
