Roxas urges Maserati owner to surrender
MANILA, Philippines–Interior Secretary Mar Roxas on Friday urged Joseph Russel Ingco to surrender and clear his alleged involvement in the assault of a traffic enforcer in Quezon City.
“We already know details about the suspect and we are just waiting for an arrest warrant to be issued. Until then, he has ample time to think about presenting himself peacefully before the police,” Roxas said in a statement.
Earlier, traffic enforcer Jorbe Adriatico filed serious physical injury, grave threat and assault upon an agent of authority, and robbery charges against Ingco in the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Officer.
“Sumusunod tayo sa tamang proseso. Gusto natin siyang magpaliwanag para malaman kung ano talaga ang nangyari (We’re following due process. We want him to explain himself so we can find out what really happened),” Roxas said.
Ingco, the owner of the blue Maserati Ghibli, was identified by the traffic enforcer as the driver who insulted and punched him on Thursday. The traffic enforcer was also dragged from the intersection of G. Araneta and Quezon Avenues to Scout Chuatoco Street.
