Suspect in robbery-rape incident in UV Express shot dead

One of the suspects in the rape-robbery incident inside a UV Express has died after he was shot when he tried to grab the firearm of one of his arresting officers, according to reports on Super Radyo’s dzBB.

Luisito Santos of Super Radyo’s dzBB said Quezon City Police District Homicide Division head Police Insp. Elmer Monsalve identified the suspect as Alfie “Buddy” Turado, 34, and a resident of Barangay Pasong Tamo in Quezon City.

He allegedly admitted that he was one of the suspects caught on CCTV with another suspect identified as Wilfredo Lorenzo.

However, Turado denied that he raped the victim and added that he was the driver of the colorum UV Express van.

He reportedly shaved his head so he cannot be identified but Quezon City residents already gave the police information on his whereabouts.

Turado was brought to a hospital after he was shot when he tried to grab the firearm of a police officer.

In a separate report, Allan Gatus of Super Radyo’s dzBB said Turado has died while undergoing medical treatment.
