It has been reported that an attempted robbery occurred on a dredger vessel whilst anchored at the South Anchorage Area, Manila, Philippines. The Chief Engineer was confronted by one robber armed with a gun, who pointed the weapon at the Chief Engineer's head and locked him in a comfort room. Three additional robbers were attempting to steal items from the vessel but noticed that the crew were in the mess hall. Upon seeing the crew, the perpetrators made their escape empty handed in a white motorbanca. The crew was mustered and a search completed which confirmed nothing had been stolen. The Master reported the incident to the Manila Vessel Traffic Management Service and a Philippine Coast Guard vessel was dispatched to the area. The Coast Guard vessel carried out boarding and searches of all motorbancas within the area, however the perpetrators were not located. The Coast Guard vessel then returned to the dredger to carry out an investigation.
