Man Pretending as Limp Resist Arrest and Harasses an Arresting Officer in EDSA

An arresting officer sought to apprehend a man who pretended to be a limp in order to extort money from bus passengers on EDSA, but the suspect resisted.

The man was arrested when some commuters at the EDSA Carousel Ortigas Avenue station complained about him pretending to be limp in order to beg money. According to a Facebook post by Gadget Addict, the guy is cursing them out and even threatening them with a knife when they refuse to give him money.

The arresting officer, I-ACT PCG Marshal Abundol, sought to seize the offender and escort him away from the busway. The suspect, however, refused to leave the area, stood in front of the buses, and began verbally insulting the authority figure.

The man then pulled out a knife and tries to harass the I-ACT PCG Marshal, revealing his ability to run while wearing crutches. According to the footage, Abundol then pushed the man down to disarm him, and they examined the man for any more possible weapons with the help of a bus controller in the vicinity.

A PNP-HPG member in the area quickly arrived on the scene to offer help and calm the situation. The individual, identified only as “Ariel,” was known for wandering around the EDSA Carousel busways, begging for money, yelling at passengers, throwing rocks at buses, and otherwise appearing to be insane.

As such, the I-ACT urges the public to be attentive and report any such or similar incidents to the security personnel posted throughout the dedicated stations as part of Task Force EDSA Loop. As a result, the I-ACT asks that people refrain from posting or sharing malicious materials on social media.
