- Chloe and her friends rode the taxi after spending partying at a club in BGC
- The taxi driver took the victim to a motel, where he sexually assaulted and robbed her
- The suspect will be charged for rape and robbery
While the general public is still in distress with the van driver who raped and robbed two female passengers, another similar case happened when a taxi driver in Taguig raped and robbed an intoxicated female passenger.
Authorities were able to apprehend Ramil Marco Neric, a taxi driver from Taguig, after being identified by his victim. 'Chloe' (not the victim's real name) ascertained Neric to be her perpetrator. Neric was arrested in the same taxi lane he was in where he picked up Chloe and her friends.
According to Chloe, she and her friends rode the taxi after a girl's night out at a popular club in Bonifacio Global City (BGC). Her friends went out of the taxi for a moment to use the comfort room and that was when Neric immediately drove off with the drunk and semi-conscious victim to a motel in Pasig where he allegedly raped and robbed her.
The suspect, who took away the victim's valuables, even drove her back to the apartment where her friends were patiently and worriedly waiting.

Chloe's friends immediately reported the incident to the authorities and showed the police a photo of Neric taken by them during a selife inside his taxi.
When reporters asked him for comments, Neric only had apologies for the victim. The perpetrator's wife even showed up at the police station, begging the victim to forgive him and not press any charges, saying Neric is only 25 years old and has two children.
BGC Station Commander Insp. Rommel bulan urged women to drink responsibly and not get drunk during parties especially if they have to commute.
Neric is now being charged of rape and robbery.
