Kapuso actor Rob Moya chased a snatcher who took his cellphone while he was travelling along C5 road Saturday evening.

Moya said that he was on his way home to Pasig when suddenly a loud thud from his car’s rear made him stop and go out.

When he stepped out of the vehicle to check, it was then he realized a thief was on the other side of the car, who then opened the door, and took his cellphone.

Rob said he chased the snatcher not just for his phone, but so that the culprit would learn from his lesson and not victimize others.

“So hinabol ko talaga, whatever it takes, as long as may ginawang mali ‘yung tao siyempre ayoko rin naman mangyari sa ibang tao ‘yun,” Rob said. [So I really went after him whatever it takes, as long as he did something wrong and of course, I don’t want it to happen to anyone too].

Rob said he even stopped a motorist to help him chase the suspect.

Several barangay tanods of East Rembo, Makati also helped Rob and eventually the thief, identified as Johaini Amal, was captured.

The authorities are currently on the hunt for the accomplice, named “Jamrex”.
