A group of holduppers who went viral on social media after being chased by a moto vlogger has successfully been traced and caught by the authorities.
Currently, the suspects were being held at QCPD Station 16 and they already recovered the bag the suspect took from the victim.
On April 1, Jett Lau shared a video of the said holduppers after he saw them forcefully take a bag of a student along Fairview, Quezon City.
It can be seen that Lau tried to chase the said group so he could take a clear photo of them.
He then reported the incident to the authorities.
Lau became extra careful while chasing the suspects because according to them, one of them was armed.
“Sabi ko, anong nangyari? Hinoldap daw iyong estudyante. So hinabol ko. Malaking motor iyong dala ko eh, kaya naabutan naman natin kaya lang medyo nahirapan kami sumingit,” Lau said.
According to him, he considered trying to forcefully stop the suspects but he decided to stop his plan because of the possible risks.
“‘Di ko naman puwede gawin kasi walang helmet. ‘Pag sumemplang din iyon, siyempre inisip ko ‘yung puwedeng mangyari. Baka pwedeng maaksidente,” he explained.
The video reached 17 million views as of writing, becoming the most-watched video made by a Filipino moto vlogger on Facebook.
