WATCH: Traffic enforcers assaulted by SUV driver

A video showing two traffic enforcers being assaulted by a man driving a sport utility vehicle (SUV) Wednesday is making rounds on social media.


Quezon City Police District (QCPD)’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit head Chief Inspector Rodel Marcelo told The Philippine Star that 60-year-old Simplicio Retirado, and Raul Mercado, 35, pulled over a black Mitsubishi Montero with licensed plate number "UJQ-889" for entering a one-way street in Barangay East Kamias at past 11 a.m. on April 29.

A closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage that captured the incident shows the SUV driver pushing the window of his car towards Retirado and hit the traffic enforcer with a gun.

The suspect then pointed a finger to and approached Mercado, attempted to hit him with the gun, and kicked the traffic enforcer as the latter was walking away. A male companion of the driver, also armed with a pistol, alighted from the vehicle. The two sped off after the incident.
