how safe are buses to Flores at night

Hello

Im am planning to take one of the overnight buses to Flores. I just read from one of the country's newspapers that a police officer was recently injured and killed in a bus robbery. Can someone advice me if its ok to take one of these buses at night? If yes, which bus line should I take. Thank you

Can you post a link? I've never heard of a problem with those overnight buses.

If it really happened keep in mind that several buses make that run every night and have been doing so for years. Will anyone guarantee there is never going to be a robbery? Not even the paid touts. Statistically you are quite safe.
