MANILA, Philippines – Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Francis Tolentino vowed to identify the man in a sports car who allegedly assaulted a traffic constable on a busy Quezon City intersection on Thursday morning.

“We are trying to trace the ownership of the sports car without plate number and the name of the aggressive driver whose actuations should merit appropriate penalty and condemnation,” said Tolentino in a statement posted on the MMDA’s official Facebook page.
