Gonzales, who sustained an injury on her heck, described the suspect to be slim, police reports showed.
Station 1 commander, Chief Insp. Adonis Rosales, said they already have the identities of the suspects and, in fact, they had been tailing them in the past weeks.
Rosales said the suspects, who are between 20 to 25 years-old, have four other companions. He said that they use three motorcycles in their operations and usually operate by fours.
He said the two serve as lookouts, another as spotter of their prospective victims, and the fourth as driver of the motorcycle they use to get away after carrying-out a robbery.*APN
