The victim named Armando Yabut took it to Facebook to explain what happened.

He immediately coordinated with the management of Grab to find details of the passenger and return the item.

Yabut said that when Simon seemed nice and calm when he called him.

Simon insisted for Yabut to return his phone because he had an emergency. Yabut said that his passenger even offered him money just to return the phone.

The Grab driver declined his passenger’s monetary offer and decided to just return the phone.

When he met his passenger, Yabut said, Simon immediately attacked him and accused of theft.

“Pagdating ko po doon sa bahay nila, ang bungad po sa akin ‘Kaninong cellphone ‘yan?’ Sabi ko, ‘Sa inyo po, Sir. Ako po ‘yung driver.’ Sabi niya sakin, ‘Pinaginteresan mo ‘yung cellphone ko, magnanakaw ka!’ Tapos ‘yun inumpisahan na po niya kong bugbugin,” Yabut said in an interview with GMA.

“Sinuntok po niya ko sa mukha ng malakas tapos napaupo po ako… sinakal po niya ko tapos pinatumba po niya ko tapos ‘yung mukha ko talagang dinidikdik po niya sa semento,” he added.

Yabut said that he was brought to the barangay hall wherein he was forced to admit the crime he did not commit.

Yabut’s left eye was swollen because of the attack. He also sustained bruises on his forehead and ear.
