Two debt collectors for a lending company were robbed by two unidentified men at a store located along Magdalena Street, Barangay Zone 12, Talisay City, Negros Occidental, Wednesday afternoon.

Police identified the victims as Ivan Kaye Peralta and Joan Tomarong, a field supervisor for a lending company based in Bacolod City.

Talisay City police reported the victims were collecting money inside a store owned by Venus Adivas when two unidentified men on a Honda motorcycle approached them.
