An eyewitness, who spoke anonymously for security reasons, said: “The hoodlums began the attack around 3:30pm. My colleague and I were driving home when we saw people running helter-skelter near the mechanic village.

“We had to park our car on the premises of Apo Shoprite for safety reasons and run for our lives. We also saw those who set the cars ablaze brandishing machetes and small knives to intimidate and scare the people away.”

The source added that some policemen were in the area while the mayhem lasted. But, they were too few to stop the hoodlums who came in numbers.
