"Sinisingil ko ang pera ko. Talagang inamin niyang 'di niya babayaran. Parang biglang nag-init ang ulo ko, napag-interesan ko 'yung bata na kunin para magbayad pero ire-return ko yun sa kuwan, pulis," Ampatua said.

The victim's mother, for her part, said even her own investment in the company got lost.
