A viral Facebook post is sounding the alarms about suspected new modus in Los Baños. The original poster’s (OP) younger sister experienced it firsthand but fortunately survived. What happened?
Suspected new modus in Los Baños
Facebook user Stephanie Jean’s now viral Facebook post recounts her sister’s experience with a suspected new modus operandi in Los Baños. According to the post, Stephanie’s sister, who studies at the University of the Philippines Los Baños, visited to the Mercury Drugstore in Olivarez around 5 PM. An older woman approached Stephanie’s sister, asking if she could smell something unusual.
“My sister took a whiff and told her it smells okay naman then she literally disappeared right after,” said the post.
“Then two other people came inside the store (assuming they’re with the old lady) and my sister saw in her peripheral that they were kinda following her (stalker vibes).”
Stephanie’s sister immediately became suspicious and felt unsafe. But her quick thinking led her to stay near the guard.
The screenshot of the message her sister sent her reads: “Wala pang ilang minuto yon nung nagtingle na left arm ko pati face.”
“The two people with the old lady stayed in the store for like a loooong while, circling the store and WATCHING HER,” continued Stephanie. “She was still standing next to the guard. A few minutes later she saw them get one small thing. She stayed with the guard before she asked her friend to pick her up.”
When her sister got home two hours later, “she still felt very drowsy and couldn’t feel half her body.”
It’s a warning for everyone to always be on their guard
Stephanie said she’s relieved that her sister is “smart enough to get away from that.” She also urged everyone to be on their guard.
“I don’t know what kind of modus this is, but imagine what could have happened. Loss of sensation and knocks you out? Could be rape/kidnap modus and this is very SCARY. Please be alarmed and STAY SAFE. Inform your loved ones about this.”
