The city police has asked netizens to help identify the man who reportedly tried to molest a woman passenger inside a public jeepney and whose photo came out in a viral Facebook post.
Police authorities were acting on a post of Facebook user Vea Kriz Gabo Abrina who was able to took a photograph of the unidentified male.
SPO3 Emmanuel Ballos De Asis of the City Police Office’s Station 2, told Palawan News Wednesday they are asking netizens not just help repost the photo online, but to take part in identifying the suspect.
“Hinihikayat natin ang ating mga Facebook users, social media users, na i-identify nila kung sino itong tao, sabihin kung sino ‘yong tao na ito at kung saan siya nakatira, para ‘pag mag-file tayo ng case, meron tayong identity,” said De Asis.
In her post, Abrina stated the man embarked on the multicab they were riding along barangay San Miguel and sat right next to her female friend. She said it was along national highway of barangay San Pedro when the man suddenly grabbed her companion on her private parts.
SPO3 De Asis also urged the woman involved to file a formal complaint for harassment with the police for them to act on the case.
