CABADBARAN CITY -- Two persons who posed as masseurs swindled a 72-year-old retired teacher of jewelries worth P50,000 in Purok 4, Barangay Kauswagan, Cabadbaran City on Tuesday.

Cabadbaran City Police initial official report revealed the suspects arrived at the house of the victim, identified as Tarcila Sabornido Nakila, and introduced themselves as masseurs or health therapists giving free consultations and massages.

The suspects ordered the victim to remove her gold ring and gold bracelets worth some P50,000 all before the free massage started.

After many massage strokes, the suspects thanked Nakila and left. They then boarded their color blue XRM Honda single motorcycle parked outside the victiim's home.

The suspect noticed later that her gold ring and gold bracelets were already missing.

She suspected the two riding in tandem swindlers took away her jewelry.

The victim, accompanied by her house companions, immediately reported the incident to the Cabadbaran City Police here.

Cabadbaran City Police Office is hunting down the suspects.
