Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko” Moreno Domagoso on Thursday offered a P1-million reward for the arrest of seven men who robbed a bank in Binondo, Manila, early Wednesday morning.

Police said the robbery took place at the Metrobank branch at the corner of Sto. Cristo Street and C.M. Recto Avenue in Binondo, Manila, around 8:40 a.m. on July 10.

“I am offering P1 million for the arrest of at least seven suspects who also took away the CCTV of the bank. Fortunately, the Manila Police District has already secured a copy of the CCTV from the barangay,” Domagoso said.

“To those individuals who are watching, whoever knows and who will know and who can give us information to capture the criminals, I will give you a P1-million reward,” he added.

The mayor said the bank employees were corralled into a room during the robbery.

No one was reported hurt in the incident.

Investigators are still trying to determine how much money, if any, the robbers carted away from the bank.

Police said two of the suspects were wearing security guard uniforms, while another was clad in a Grab Philippines uniform.

“I hope these criminals will be stopped. Do not go here in Manila. We will pursue this, we will find you. We will not allow you to [harm] the citizens of Manila. You cannot escape the long arm of the law,” Domagoso warned the suspects.

“To all enforcement units in the Philippines, I am asking for your help. Let us find them,” he said.

In a statement, the Metropolitan Bank and Trust Company said no clients were harmed during the robbery.

“Metrobank condemns the robbery at our Sto. Cristo branch in Manila. We will be working closely with the Philippine National Police and other authorities to ensure that the perpetrators are apprehended,” the bank said.
