Similar to the fairy tale, they fit the slipper that was left behind to Tagpuno’s foot and it matched his missing footwear.

Tagpuno admitted that he tried to steal the mobile phone but left hurriedly, leaving his slipper in the process. He explained to the authorities that he only did the unlawful deed since he was hungry and had no money to pay for food.

The suspect failed to steal the mobile phone – however, his neighbor still plans to file charges for trespassing.
