A 70-year-old man was injured after being shot and robbed while biking in Paoay, Ilocos Norte, police reported.
Victim Bernardo Mangusing, a farmer, was brought to a hospital in Batac City for treatment, according to a report from the Ilocos regional police.
The incident occurred around 7 p.m. Wednesday, along the Paoay-Currimao Road in Brgy. San Pedro.
Mangusing just came from the farm where he was working and was heading home, when two men on a motorcycle followed him and shot him to the nape, according to the report.
The duo then took the elderly man’s wallet, which contained about P1,000, identification cards, and other documents, before they fled.
Mangusing still managed to drive his bicycle on the way home, and was later taken to the hospital.
Investigation is ongoing to determine the armed robbers’ identities and whereabouts, while police in neighboring towns were also advised to be on the lookout.
