Nifras says son
was a victim, too


Bacolod City Agriculturist Goldwyn Nifras yesterday said that, contrary to police reports, his 17-year-old son was not chased and arrested by the tricycle driver and his companion when two unidentified men attempted to rob the driver of the taxi his son rode in Brgy. Mandalagan, Friday.

Nifras said his son had nothing to do with the incident at all, and that the reports indicating that tricycle driver Julius Gonzales and his companion Stephen De la Rosa both of Brgy. Mandalagan, Bacolod had chased the suspects, who held up taxi driver Carlito Gallano of Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental and caught his son, are not correct.

The truth, he said, is that, after alighting from the taxi, his son fled and went to Georgina Subdivision to seek help because he thought the suspects were chasing him.

Nifras said his son met a tanod while at the subdivision who helped him look for the suspects and his son was already resting at the gate of the subdivision when Gallano, Dela Rosa and Gonzales arrived in the area.

He reiterated that his son was not involved in the foiled robbery and that his son is also a victim, who was, in fact, wounded during the incident.

Nifras has gone to the Women’s and Children’s Complaints desk to file a police blotter.

Gallano told the police that the son of Nifras rode his taxi at B.S. Aquino Drive at about 1 a.m. Friday and later, the two suspects also rode the taxi and held him up when they were in Purok Tonggoy, in Brgy. Mandalagan.

Gallano bumped the tricycle of de la Rosa, prompting the two suspects to flee, the police said.

As of yesterday, the police was still working to identify the suspects.*APN
