An old man was caught on video as he opened a lady’s bag in a jeep. But he angered netizens even more because he pretended to be surprised when he was caught, attempting to make it appear that the woman was at fault.
In a video shared by Facebook page Pinoy Viral Videos, a woman who goes by the name Joann May had ridden a jeep. Moments later, the old man sitting behind her was using some ninja moves to open her bag and take some of her valuables inside. A man sitting opposite them knew what the old man was planning to do; thus, he took a video of the incident.
“Please be alert especially when you are in the jeep! 😭
This happened kaninang umaga pagsakay ko ng jeep byaheng Dau to Angeles [Pampanga]. Usually sa likod ako ng driver umuupo o kaya likod ng passenger seat pero bago ako makapunta dun umusog yung matanda para bigyan ako ng space. Pagkaupo ko medyo nafeel ko there’s something wrong pero hinayaan ko nalang baka mabait naman yung matanda at hindi sya katulad ng mga napapanood ko.
Habang nagphophone ako at enjoy na enjoy biglang meron akong nafeel na kumakapkap sa bag ko and pagtingin ko bukas na ang bag ko. Bigla kong chineck yung wallet ko and thank God nandun pa. (Hindi na to kasali sa clip).”
According to the woman, she was too scared to shout and announce what the old man had done. It turned out that the guy who took the video was also scared that the old man had companions who might have sharp objects to cause them trouble; thus, he just took the video without saying anything.
“Sino ba hindi maiiyak lalo na kung babae ka. Bigla ako natahimik kasi natatakot ako baka meron syang [kutsilyo]. Pagkababa nya chineck ko yung bag ko ulit. Nakuha nya yung coin purse at makikita sa last part ng video na nilagay nya sa upuan nya. Nagpapasalamat parin ako kasi yun lang nakuha nya at safe ako! Sobrang traumatic nung experience! 😭”
In the video, it was unclear at first how the old man did it. But if you watch closely, he used a jacket to hide his hand as he opened the lady’s bag.
