A KOREAN businessman was apprehended after he allegedly injected illegal drug into a lady he checked in with at a Pasay City hotel, which caused the woman to go wild and run naked in Pasay City yesterday morning.
Police identified the suspect as Seokwon Choi, 32, billeted at Positano Azure condominium in Bicutan, Taguig City.
Authorities received a call from San Juan De Dios Hospital at around 5:45 a.m. regarding a naked woman who was brought by a concerned taxi driver identified as Jeeboy Estigoy after she ran outside of the hotel.
According to the victim, she and Choi checked in at a hotel on Roxas Boulevard in Barangay 76, Pasay City. While inside, she said the suspect injected her with illegal drug. As a result, she went wild and ran outside of the premises of the hotel.
The taxi driver saw her and took her to the hospital.
Choi, on the other hand, went to the hospital to check on her. As he arrived there, he refused to have his car checked by the duty security guard of the hospital.
This prompted the guard to call the Police Community Precinct (PCP) 1 of the Pasay City Police.
As police proceeded to inspect his valuables, they recovered one sachet of suspected shabu and pieces of syringe inside his car.
Choi was arrested and will be facing drug-related charges before the Pasay City Prosecutor’s Office, according to police. (Dhel Nazario)
