Her friends, who arrived at the apartment ahead, immediately reported the incident to the police and showed them a photo of Neric which they captured inside the taxi after the latter agreed to take a groufie with them.

Neric was spotted and arrested at the same lane where he picked up the group.

Following his arrest, the driver apologized to his victim. His wife, who also came to the police station, knelt down and asked for forgiveness and pleaded to Chloe not to press charges against her husband.
