“Itong foreigner na ito, tumawid sa gitna while green ang stoplight. Bakit daw namin inaaresto. Nang tinatabi namin siniko ako. (Nang dinadala) sa presinto dinuraan ako sa likod. Medyo malaking tao kaya malakas pumalag, hindi natin papayagan ito,” Domagoso said in an interview on dzBB radio.

According to Manila Vice Mayor Isko Moreno, he and several officials were in the Pedro Gil corner Roxas Boulevard area late Tuesday afternoon, December 30, when they spotted a foreign national jaywalking, causing heavy traffic along the already congested area.

A tweet by dzBB’s Vargas identified the suspect as Amro Aboud Hassan Eitayeb, 23, a Sudanese student pilot.

Eitayeb will be detained at the MPD until after the New Year festivities since he will be unable to post bail on December 30 or 31. He will be facing possible charges for assaulting Philippine officials on top of jaywalking case.

Moreno also stated he also plans to ask the Immigration Bureau to eventually put Eitayeb on the country’s blacklist for being an “undesirable alien.”
