MANILA – A man was mauled by angry bystanders after he was caught trying to steal a jeepney in Pasig City Thursday evening.
Suspect Juanito Domingo was caught by Barangay Buting resident Jun Duroyan trying to steal a jeepney owned by his cousin, Romie Blanco.
Duroyan said Domingo ran away after he was seen trying to start up the jeepney using various tools.
Authorities eventually arrested Domingo. The suspect, for his part, said he only fell asleep inside the jeepney out of drunkenness and the tool box is not his.
Domingo sustained head injuries from the mauling. He is facing carnapping charges. – report from Carolyn Bonquin, ABS-CBN News
