MANILA, Philippines—The Quezon City Police Department (QCPD) warned commuters on Tuesday of a modus operandi of a robbery group victimizing jeepney and bus passengers.

Chief Superintendent Magtanggol Gatdula said the modus operandi of the group, known as “Dura-Dura gang,” is to distract passengers by spitting on their backs and take their valuables.

On Monday, one passenger fell victim to the “Dura-Dura gang” in Kamuning.

Joan Tallod, 22, said she was onboard a jeepney when one of the suspects distracted her using this ploy and another took her cellular phone.

Because of this, Gatulda advised commuters to stay alert at all times and to be mindful of their belongings especially while inside public transports.
