A 30-year-old man was held up and robbed of about P 78,000 in jewellery and cash by two unidentified male suspects riding in tandem on a motorcycle while he was on his way home near the Valencia Motorpool in Barangay Bong-ao, Valencia, Negros Oriental, Thursday.

The victim was identified as Reymond Tigas of Purok Ocra, Barangy Bong-ao, Valencia.

Police investigation showed that at around 10:30 p.m. Thursday, while the victim was on his motorcycle going home, he noticed another motorcycle following him, with two persons on board, who overtook him and ordered him to stop.
