A Philippine police officer on Monday filed criminal
complaints against a Chinese woman who threw a soft tofu drink at him
during an argument at an overhead train station in the capital.
Police officer William Cristobal accused the suspect, Jiale Zhang, a 23-year-old fashion design student, of direct assault, disobedience to an agent of a person in authority, and unjust vexation.
Zhang was arrested on Saturday after she threw the tofu drink, locally called taho, at Cristobal who stopped her from entering the platform of the overhead train station in the Manila suburban city of Mandaluyong.
Cristobal said he prevented Zhang from entering the platform because she had not yet consumed the tofu drink, which was not allowed to be brought in. The incident has gone viral and triggered calls for Zhang's deportation. Security has been stepped up in Manila's overhead commuter train stations after officials received a bomb threat last month. Authorities banned the bringing of all liquids onto platforms.
