“As I was driving with my dashboard camera on, I noticed a young guy lurking around in the streets... He found his next victim, a young vulnerable female boarding a jeepney… Bystanders were shocked and weren't able to help as if nothing happens,” the netizen narrated.
Many netizens urged Filipino commuters to avoid using their phone or displaying their jewelry when riding jeepneys, buses, trains and pedicabs.
“Rule na yan sa Pinas, di ka pwede mag celfone sa PUV. Ang dami palaging umaaligid na naghahanap ng bibiktimahin,” a netizen explained.
(That is an unwritten rule in the Philippines: you cannot user your cell phone in a public utility vehicle. There are many thieves roaming around looking for people to victimize.)
