Carjackers aren't so heartless after all as a trio who stole a van in Quezon City made sure the family driver they victimized had enough cash to get home.

According to an ABS-CBN report, driver Rodolfo Elpos was parking a white Toyota Super Grandia in Barangay Loyola around 9pm on August 18 when one of the carjackers aimed a gun at him.

"Pagbukas ko ng sasakyan biglang may bumukas sa kabila at tinutukan ako ng baril. Pinadapa na ako dun. Papatayin daw ako pag ako’y gumalaw," Elpos was quoted saying in the report.

The carjackers drove off with Elpos still inside. The driver was dropped off near Calamba Street in Quezon City.

Before the driver left, the carjackers gave him money for transportation. The report did not disclose the amount given to the driver.

The van, owned by Minette Padilla, was bought just last month. Authorities have alerted expressway and port officials about the stolen vehicle.
