The suspect in the devastating Makati road rage incident has been tracked and seized in his home in Pasig City.

The National Capital Region Police located the suspect, Gerrard Raymund Talusan Yu, 34, in Riverside Village. They arrested Yu on Wednesday morning and impounded the black Mercedes Benz he drove during the violent encounter, which was also found in his residence.

The vehicle's plate number, which was originally BCS 77, had been replaced with DAB 9670. The first plate was stowed inside the vehicle.

Authorities also confiscated two .40 caliber pistols registered under Yu's name. One of these, a Taurus G2C pistol with the serial number ABE632300, was identified through firearms crossmatching to be the gun used in the crime. Moreover, Yu came out positive for gunpowder residue in a paraffin test.


At around 2:30 PM on Tuesday, May 28, an altercation by the Ayala Southbound Tunnel in Barangay Urdaneta escalated into a fatal shooting, which killed 65-year-old Aniceto Mateo, a family driver, who had a middle-aged housemaid and a 7-year-old on board.

The autopsy revealed that the bullet had pierced through Mateo's right shoulder, into the right side of his neck, and exited the left side, tearing the left carotid artery.

“We extend our deepest sympathy to the family and loved ones of the deceased victim. This tragic road rage incident has been thoroughly investigated, and the perpetrator has been apprehended. The suspect is currently in the custody of Makati City Police Station, and a murder charge will be filed against him ensuring an airtight case for his conviction. The NCRPO remains committed to ensuring the safety and security of our community and will not tolerate acts of violence,” Police Major General Jose Melencio Nartatez said.

Mateo's family has formally filed a case against Yu at the Makati Police Station.
