CAVITE, Philippines – Three Chinese men were arrested in Barangay Molino 4, Bacoor, Cavite, on Thursday night, January 5, for allegedly abducting a female data analyst who is also Chinese.
Police Lieutenant Colonel Ruther Saquilayan, chief of the Bacoor police, identified the suspects as:
- Huang Jun, 31
- Huang Chen Bo, 24
- Chang Yu Pen, 22
The suspects lived in Molino, where they had also kept their victim since December 5.
They were found in possession of high-caliber weapons during the joint rescue operation by the Bacoor City Police Office, the Cavite Provincial Intelligence Unit, and the Anti- Kidnapping Group under Police Colonel Frederick Eslava Obar.
The 28-year-old victim, whom the police referred to by the alias Lady Wu, is a data analyst and a resident of Neijiang City in Sichuan, China. She told the police that she came to the Philippines because the suspects promised her a job and a salary of P150,000. When she arrived, however, the suspects kidnapped her.
Two Filipinos went to inform the police on Thursday afternoon that a woman who appeared to have been held against her will had been brought to Shore Residences Tower C2 in Pasay City, and then was pulled out again by her companions.
