A VIDEO showing a man scratching cars parked in a parking lot at a commercial center in Talisay City went viral yesterday, eliciting concerns from netizens about the safety of vehicles parked in public places.
The three-minute clip shared by Facebook user Teddy M Ticar last April 20 shows a man in white sleeveless shirt, shorts, slippers and shades parking first beside a red car, and without totally getting out of the vehicle, started scratching the door and window of the red car using a car key.
The man then backed up, looked around after getting off his car and started scratching the two other cars, one of which is owned by a tenant, parked across the red car. He then left.
Everything was over in 1:07 minutes—the act of scratching all three cars lasted five seconds only—but the passenger of the first car got out of the vehicle only after 14 seconds to make sure the black car had left the premises.
The incident happened last Saturday, April 18, around 3:50 p.m. at the parking lot of Robinsons Supermarket at the South Central Square in Barangay Lawaan, Talisay City.
Random and costly scratches on parked new cars at Robinsons-Lawaan around 3:50PM of April 18, 2015. Maybe you can help identify the suspect thru this video. Deep scratches that cost thousands.... tsk tsk tsk.Posted by Teddy M Ticar on Monday, April 20, 2015
