Kolehiyala asks help of social media in identifying male passenger who allegedly $exually harrassed her inside UV express

A kolehiyala from FEU took to Facebook alerting fellow females from a s&x pervert whom she accused of touching her private part inside a UV express.

Facebook user Patricia Sta Maria said she took the UV express on July 10, 2017 from an fx terminal in Cubao bound for Parang, Marikina.

Here’s Patricia’s vivied recollection of the alleged incident.

“07/10/2017. I was going home from FEU and I’m from Marikina so my usual route is to take the lrt line 2 recto station up to cubao station (gateway) and to line up at the fx terminal to parang. I was the last one to sit at the middle part of the uv (MPV type crosswind/adventure) and i was seated next to a man that was wearing shades. Along the trip i noticed that he placed his hand behind my back so i thought it was not intended. But then, he placed his bag infront of his hands to cover up whatever he was doing. And then his hands were coming closer to my chest until he was able to reach it so i used my elbow to push off his arm. So I called my friend to let her know what was happening and I also mentioned to her that I have pictures for proof so he suddenly asked for the driver to stop so he can get off. Everyone should be aware with this kind of people. If anyone know or recognizes him, please message me.”
