According to an ABS-CBN report, a video uploaded by Domy D.R. went viral on social media about a man mistreating and hurting an old woman in a bus terminal in Cubao, Quezon City. What’s worse is, the woman is his mother.
The still unidentified man in blue shirt is sitting beside a woman in red known to be his mother. He was seen physically abusing the woman and was holding a towel trying to put it on the woman’s face and forcefully pushing her so as to make her lie down, hurting her in the process noticeable from her cries.
According to a security guard, JP Tanteo, the man who introduced himself as a soldier together with his mother were not waiting for a bus but are staying at the terminal to spend the night. Not taken on video, the security guard saw the man dragging his mother from the stairs to the seats where the man was caught on video mistreating the woman. They left in the morning riding a taxi and the disrespect shown by the man towards his mother is very evident according to Tanteo.
For the man’s acts, he may be imprisoned for up to 12 years and may have to pay a fine of 100,000 to 300,000 pesos according to Javier Jimenez, DSWD Assistant Secretary.
