Two members of sexy group Baywalk Bodies lost cash and valuables to an alleged member of the Salisi Gang inside a spa in Quezon City Tuesday night.

Baywalk Bodies members Pantene Palanca and Iris Iñigo said a man posing as a talent scout approached them inside a mall and asked if the two could model for a popular brand of pants.

Palanca said the man asked them to go to a spa and beauty salon on Roces Avenue for a makeover before the alleged photoshoot. Iñigo said the man even promised to pay for the makeover, which took several hours.

"Bigla na lamang nga siyang nawala tangay na yung pera namin. Para kaming na-hypnotize. Nabiktima kami pero may mas nauna pa palang nabiktima sa amin dun din sa spa," Iûigo said.

The two said they lost their cell phones, P11,000 cash and the keys to their house.

SPO4 Boy Trago, a police officer assigned to Quezon City Police District Station 10, said members of the Salisi Gang often befriend their victims before taking their cash and valuables.
