Two armed suspects on Friday robbed a man carrying out door-to-door delivery of social pension from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to senior citizens in Carmen.

Police identified the victim as John Rey Dela Torre, 28, an employee of the Bohol Delivery of the BTI Courier Express, Inc. which was tasked by the DSWD to deliver cash aid to elders in the area.

Dela Torre was reportedly travelling from Dagohoy Town when two masked men carrying pistols flagged him down along Brgy. Buenavista, Carmen.

The suspects held Dela Torre at gunpoint and then snatched from the victim a bag which contained cash for pensioners in Brgy. Bicao, Carmen.
