Motorists warned of stone-throwers at Quezon Avenue tunnel

The Quezon City Police District warned motorists of stone-throwing incidents along the Quezon Avenue tunnel at the corners of Agham Road and EDSA.
A report on GMA-7's "24 Oras" said on Wednesday that the police are zeroing in on batang-hamog or street children as the culprits behind the reported mischief
"Kung meron mang naging biktima nito, ipagbigay alam ito at i-report officially," QCPD Director Chief Supt. Joel Pagdilao said. 
Metro Manila Development Authority chairman Atty. Francis Tolentino said that the agency is planning to add closed circuit televisions in the area. The agency is also planning to fence the area where stone-throwers usually stand before hitting their targets. 
"Doon mismo sa taas ng pinangyarihan nang sa ganoon matutukan... Baka makadisgrasya sa buhay ng motorista," he said.

At least three motorists have been victims in Quezon City. 
The latest happened last night to Ving del Prado at around 9 p.m. Only the rear passenger side door was hit. 
"Noong tinamaan iyong kotse ko, I didn't stop kasi narinig ko iyong modus operandi noong mga ibang kidnappers na babatuhin nila iyong car mo and then kukunin nila iyong care mo," she said in a phone interview with GMA News.
At around the same time, the stone-throwers also hit another vehicle. 
"Akala ko may nasagasaan lang ako na bato tapos na-realize ko baka binato nga ako noong sa may nasa taas na mga tao, tapos noong chineck ko nga iyong kotse may tama iyong bubong na may scratch tapos may dent," motorist Rommel Seva said. 
But the worse happened to Cams Anareta's father. The windshield of his car was hit by a big rock.
