Even petty criminals are getting bolder in the Philippines

Police and airport guards, after a brief chase, arrested and identified the alleged petty criminal as Yvanne R. Lacson, a resident of Malibay, Pasay City. The police said this is the first time that a  petty criminal tried to victimize travelers coming to the airport.

The victim just alighted from a van and was about to enter NAIA’s Terminal 2 when the suspect allegedly struck from behind. The victim screamed for help which caught the attention of nearby police officers and airport guards.
