MANILA, Philippines – Is he a serial robber who has the penchant for 19th day of the month to carry out his crime?
The authorities are looking for a taxi driver named Ricky Ramos who is suspected of robbing four women, and raping at least one of them, over the last three months in Mandaluyong City. Coincidentally, he committed each crime every 19th day of the month since January this year.
In an article by Jovic Yee for Inquirer, the first two victims were identified as Kristine dela Cruz and Kristine Quiros. The two women boarded Ramos’ taxi at the corner of Sheridan and William Streets in Barangay Highway Hills on January 19 around 1:40 am.
Ramos allegedly robbed the two passengers at gunpoint, taking De la Cruz’s mobile phones and bags containing cash. Unfortunately, they were unable to take the taxi’s plate number.
The second incident took place exactly a month later.
The victim this time is Shiary Mae Berdin. She was picked up by Ramos outside a mall in Edsa, Mandaluyong around 2:40 am. (Click here to read more)
