Man criticized after offering free ride to college student

A man who allegedly offered free ride to a college student in Cebu has been criticized online for suspicion that he had a bad intention.

The unidentified individual is now a subject of a public warning posted by Juan Trapiko, a Facebook community page popular among Cebuano social media users.

According to the post, the man drives a Toyota Revo and waits for female students outside University of San Carlos (USC) or Cebu Doctors' University (CDU) and then offers his target a free ride.

If the student refuses and goes away, the suspect would follow and insist about his offer, the post mostly written in vernacular stated.

Juan Trapiko attached a screenshot of a story from an alleged complainant and a photo of the purported vehicle driven by the subject.

In his response to comments, Juan Trapiko said the victim already sought help from her uncle and added that a reliable source informed him that the suspect frequents the cockfighting arena in Mandaue and has friends who are cops.
