- Around 30 people were locked inside a room at the V-Mall by a former security guard

A woman who was freed by a hostage-taker inside a mall in Greenhills finally spoke up in front of the media about the tension-packed moments that she experienced while held hostage.
KAMI learned that a former security guard in Virra Mall made headlines after he locked around 30 employees inside a room in the said establishment.
The hostage-taker, who was identified as Archie Paray, repeatedly mentioned that he intended to expose the corruption that is allegedly happening in the mall’s management.
Through an interview with the press, a freed hostage revealed that all the people inside the room were not harmed by the gunman who was making strong demands.
She also stated that the hostage-taker even asked for understanding from dozens of individuals who were dragged into his violent act against Virra Mall’s management.
The woman also stressed that Archie did not fail to show concern to his hostages and he even found a way to bring them food and water.
“Kinakausap niya naman po [yung mga hostages]. Sinasabi niya sa amin yung mga sentimiyento niya… Natakot kami, syempre… Though nadoon pa din yung concern niya sa amin,” she quipped through an interview with Inquirer.net.
“Actually, nandon yung time na nag-declare yung isa sa amin na pregnant siya, yun pala may menstruation lang siya, sobrang nagso-sorry siya dun. So pinalabas niya yun. Tapos nung time na tiningnan niyang 1 o’clock na at hindi pa kami nakakain, humingi siya sa labas na kuhanan kami ng water or something na makakain,” she added.
