A Grab driver in Quezon City, Philippines, was allegedly beaten up by a passenger whose phone he had returned.
The driver, 30-year-old Armando Yabut, suffered serious physical injuries and sued the passenger in the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office on Monday (Feb 12).
Yabut had written in a Facebook post on Feb 9 about how the passenger, Jinno John Simon, left his phone inside his vehicle.
According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Yabut said he coordinated with Grab to locate Simon, a tattoo artist.
He then called Simon, who asked if Yabut could drive to his home to return his phone.
"But … instead of thanking me, he suddenly accused me of being a thief and began to beat me up," wrote Yabut in his post.
According to a police report, Yabut was forced to sign a settlement admitting he stole the phone after officials threatened to summon his pregnant wife.
Simon has not been heard from since.
