This young lady deserves our praise because she refused to be cowed in fear and stopped a thief from consummating a crime inside a public transport somewhere in Davao City.
In a Facebook post viewed more 15,537 times, a netizen using the name Tina Yow Tomlinson shared the video that captured a crime as it happened.
The pickpocket was caught red-handed by the netizen after she made a scene inside the jeepney.
Thief! I was observing you a while ago! Immediately, I had everyone’s attention inside the jeep and the jeepney driver quickly stopped the vehicle and force him to go down.
The netizen said that the suspect got startled when she made the scene. In fact, the mobile phone of his victim fell to the jeepney’s floor.
He was trying to steal something inside the girl’s pocket cause when I called him out, a phone fell off from her pocket. He didn’t say anything when I called him out. He didn’t even say he wasn’t stealing because he was guilty.
The netizen said she got suspicious when the guy had this creepy stare at the sleeping woman passenger sitting in front of her in the jeepney. A moment had passed and the man started touching himself while staring at the woman. The sight made her cringe. At this point she decided to start taking a video.
When I got into the jeep, the girl in front of me was fast asleep. The man beside her got into the jeep when we got to a stop at Torres. He sat beside her and was staring at her creepily. I was observing the man once he got in. I was wearing my shades at that time, so it wasn’t obvious that I was looking at him. When we got to Abreeza he started touching himself whilst looking at the girl and for sure it made me cringe, that’s why I took a video of him quickly.
Then the next thing she knew, the suspect made several tries to steal something from the woman’s purse.
When we got to Buhagin, that’s when he started to put his arm behind his backpack and trying to reach the girl’s pocket and back. After that he would touch himself again and try to steal in the girl’s purse.
At this point, netizen turned off the video and made her move.
