The driver is now facing charges for his actions. He had originally tried to claim that his unusual elbow movements were due to him feeling hungry, and rubbing his stomach in anticipation of food.

A Manila taxi driver has been arrested after a female passenger filmed him masturbating while casting furtive glances at her legs.

Bonifacio Asuncion, aged 42, was picked up by police yesterday evening (Wednesday, May 3) after the woman showed them footage apparently showing him pleasuring himself while driving from Valenzuela to Manila on Tuesday.

The victim described how she noticed him turning round to look at her legs before noticing unusual movements of his elbow.

Police tracked the driver down to a relative’s home by tracing his taxi registration number.

Police say Asuncion initially admitted the crime, but changed his tune when interviewed by a television reporter — he then said he was hungry and rubbing his stomach.

He also claimed that he looked at the woman’s thigh’s by accident when he was checking his side mirrors.

The woman said she plans to file charges of ‘unjust vexation’ against the driver, despite his pleas to be forgiven for his moment of weakness.

“I am not going to negotiate with him. I’m not just doing this for myself, but for other women in the future,” she said.

The footage of the masturbating driver has gone viral on social media, and been viewed on Facebook more than a million times.

However, the woman should count herself lucky that the incident didn’t happen in China.

Coincidentally, on the very same day, a woman in the eastern province of Zhejiang filmed a taxi driver doing exactly the same thing, but after showing the footage to local police she was herself arrested under China’s strict anti-pornography laws.
