According to the report, the suspect was dentified as Zhang Tianlong. The suspect was said to have been in one of the taxis when he attacked the driver and ran amok while inside the vehicle, prompting the driver to instead bring him to the police.

“Kasi sabi niya alam niya raw ‘yung pupuntahan niya tapos wala, kahit saan kami mapunta, ‘No, no, no.’ ‘Yung metro malaki na hindi niya raw babayaran,” one of the taxi drivers said in report on GMA News.

The driver said the man was acting like he could break the windows of the vehicle, which prompted him to alight. He reentered when the man cooled down, which is when he headed to the MPD.

The foreigner was unruly at the police station and even took his trousers off in an outburst. He eventually calmed down after his companions arrived. While at the MPD, another taxi driver arrived and reported another incident involving the suspect.

This time, the foreigner allegedly booked a ride through a transport network vehicle service (TNVS) to bring him to a hotel in Pasay City earlier that night. The taxi driver was said to have driven the subject to MPD Station 5, and left him inside the vehicle while he reported the incident.

When he returned, the subject was no longer in the area and was said to have hailed the second taxi. The subject will face charges of physical injury and estafa for the non-payment of the fares.
