TAXI driver Joey Lorezo, 30, of Purok 2, Barangay Granada, Bacolod was injured Wednesday morning after one of his passengers punched him when he failed to stop his taxi, Station 2 commander Noel Polines said.
Polines said that at about 4 a.m., Lorezo was on his way to deliver his two passengers at Purok Narra-Baybay, Barangay 8, Bacolod.
Upon reaching the area, Lorezo failed to stop immediately which angered one of the passengers identified as a certain “Jimmy Boy” who suddenly punched Lorezo.
Lorezo sustained injuries in his left face. Moreover, the suspects also took his P700 collection and fled.
Polines added they are still conducting a further investigation to apprehend the suspect.
