Police identified the woman as Jiale Zhang, 23.
According to a Facebook post by netizen Pau Mesias, the woman threw her “taho” at Police Officer 1 William Cristobal when he stopped her from entering the station.
“Sinita ka dhil bawal n mga DRINKS or any form of liquid sa MRT. Isa kang dayuhan mam, hindi ka mrunong rumespeto sna mahuli ka at ikulong,” Mesias said her post.
