A Chinese woman has been rescued by the authorities in Batangas after she was allegedly abducted by her foreign kidnappers, the Philippine National Police (PNP) disclosed Friday, Oct. 7.
PNP chief Gen. Rodolfo Azurin Jr. said the 28-year-old victim was found by elements of Batangas City Police Station in a convenience store in Brgy. Alangilan, Batangas City.
Accordingly, the victim was last seen with her friend leaving the premises of a club in Angeles City, Pampanga last Sept. 17. The identity of the victim was withheld for security purposes.
On the following day, an unknown suspect called up the victim’s boyfriend and demanded $2 million or P116 million for the woman’s release.
The suspect even sent a video to the victim’s boyfriend showing that the Chinese woman was locked up in a dog cage and being hit with a baseball bat in the different parts of her body.
The Batangas police immediately coordinated with the Anti-Kidnapping Group (PNP-AKG) until the operatives discovered that the victim was held by her kidnappers in a subdivision in Batangas City.
Consequently, the victim managed to escape from the suspects and immediately contacted her family to seek for help, leading to her rescue.
“Some suspects are already identified and are now the subject of follow-up operations,” Azurin said.
The victim was placed under the custody of the PNP-AKG for further investigation and documentation.
