Former Goin’ Bulilit star John Manalo recently took to social media to share his experience of being held at gunpoint during a holdup incident.

In a tweet on Friday, John shared that he was buying food from a restaurant when a robbery suddenly took place. 

John narrated that he and a restaurant employee were held at gunpoint, saying that he initially didn’t know how he should react.

“Tinutukan ng baril yung nagtatadtad ng liempo at manok ko. Natutukan din ako. Sobrang bilis ng pangyayari. Di ko alam rereact ko nung una. Nahihiya lang ako kasi nakita sigurong tumatakbo ako sa CCTV,” he said. 

Responding to a netizen who asked if the experience was for real, John described the “feeling” of hearing the sound of a gun being cocked.

He added, “Sobrang kalmado lang nung holdaper. Buti naman safe lahat. Buti nalang may mga authorities na nag roronda.”

John also reassured that no one got hurt in the incident and that there were authorities patrolling the area. 

 “Guys, sa mga nag tatanong safe naman kaming lahat. May mga rumespondeng mga authorities agad. Walang nasaktan,” he said.
