Grab driver officially filed complaints against passenger for beating and accusing him of theft
Armando Yabut, a Grab driver who got beaten and accused of stealing a phone by his passenger filed a formal complaint against the latter.
In a Facebook post of the cousin of Yabut, the driver’s side of the story was elaborated.
According to the post, the incident happened early morning of February 9 when the driver of the transport service had Jinno John Simon as his passenger.
After Yabut dropped Simon in Kamuning from Makati he headed straight home but he found out that there was a phone left in the car he was driving.
So he contacted the Grab management handling him to coordinate the incident.
The phone’s owner then called Yabut and asked him to return the phone right away because it was an emergency matter and his gas expenses in going there will be paid, and so he did.
When the Grab driver arrived in the place of the phone’s owner, he was allegedly beaten instead to be thanked for the favor he did.
The worse thing than getting hurt; he was also accused of stealing the phone.
When the police arrived, he was brought to the barangay hall wherein he thought he could have the justice he wanted that time.
On the other hand, it was said on the post that Simon manipulated the story in front of the authorities and he was the one pressed to be the culprit.
According to Yabut, he cannot tolerate that despite what he done was good, he still received demeaning accusations and physical hurt from the person he was trying to help.
Aside from that, according to the Grab driver, he also received threats.
In the recent FB post of the official Page of News 5, Armando Yabut officially filed cases against Jinno John Simon.
