News of a suspect being killed after allegedly raping two of his passengers inside a UV Express van did not deter another suspect from committing the same crime.
The 20-year-old victim was with her two friends when they hailed the suspect’s cab after partying at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, ABS-CBN reported.
Along the way, her friends asked the suspect to pull over so they could go to a restroom to relieve themselves.
The suspect who saw that the victim was highly intoxicated used this opportunity to speed off and take her to a motel in Pasig City where the crime was allegedly committed.
According to the victim, she woke up inside the motel with her belongings missing. She said the suspect was still there and even took her to an apartment where her friends were waiting.
They then reported the incident to authorities.
The suspect identified as 25-year-old driver Ramil Marco Neric was apprehended at the taxi queue where they initially rode his cab. The suspect’s wife reportedly rushed to the police station and begged for forgiveness from the victim.
The suspect is facing rape and robbery charges.
