It turned out the driver of the vehicle blocking the passage was a certain Captain Ronald Saquilayan


"Help pls! Nasa...police station po ako ngayon. Gusto po ako ikulong. Nag pick up ako pasahero sa Starbucks, ngayon kahit anong pakiusap ko s [pulis] na nasa harap ay ayaw umalis," Florence said in a Facebook status on Tuesday 8:41 pm, before she was detained.

Mirza Miguel Shahzad – Florence's boyfriend who spoke and stayed with her before she was locked away – denied the allegations of the police, providing an hour-by-hour account of the events to Rappler in an email.

Narrating Florence's and his experience on Tuesday evening, Miguel said that the policeman was first to hit Florence. He said that Florence only acted on self-defense, and that the charges against her were fabricated, with the help of other personnel of the Taguig City Police.

Pateros police chief Colonel Ramchrisen Haveria Jr confirmed that Saquilayan was assigned with them.

Still, Haveria said Taguig police should investigate the incident as it happened under their territorial responsibility.

Grab Philippines spokesperson Nicka Hosaka said they were “already investigating the matter” and have “reached out to the family of the driver.”

At 9 pm, Miguel and Aubrey were told that Florence would be transferred to the main Taguig City Police Station near city hall. They asked if they could use their own car to transfer Florence. The station police chief said yes, but when they boarded the car, they were accused of another crime.

"For some reason, as we already were in the car, he got angry and stormed off to us and said we were in violation and were executing 'police disobedience' and added that case [against] Florence," Miguel said.

Miguel and Aubrey tried to take a video of the police sub-station chief threatening to arrest them. The police chief then snatched Aubrey's phone. Miguel was able to continue recording the incident and posted the footage on Facebook. In the video, the chief of the sub-station ordered his men to handcuff Aubrey.

Florence was then placed in a police mobile unit and brought to the main police headquarters. Miguel and Aubrey followed.

At 10:25 pm, a policeman finally read Florence her rights and was told she was accused of disobedience. She was cuffed then taken to the Pateros District Hospital for her pre-detention medical examination.

They returned to the main police station at around 11:20 pm.


At around 1:30 am on October 7 at the main police station, Miguel and Aubrey demanded that they see the police report, the medical report, and the quarters where Florence was detained. Cops provided none of these.
