Beware of ‘nylon string’ pranksters  

BACARRA, Ilocos Norte, Nov. 8–Be extra cautious when driving a motorcycle at night in the streets of this northern town.

A police blotter showed that since last October at least five cases of motorcyclists driving at night here were injured in the neck and chin when they unknowingly passed through a  hidden nylon string hung in both ends across the dark parts of the streets.

School teacher John Rey Galiza, one of the victims, showed to reporters his injured front side of the neck caused by the nylon string. His doctor treated his injury when it swelled.

He surmised it was the handiwork of youthful pranksters roaming the streets at night.
