TWO of three alleged drug addicts, who abducted and raped an 18-year-year old college student last week, were arrested during a follow-up operation by authorities Sunday afternoon in Valenzuela City.
Valenzuela police chief Senior Supt. Ronaldo Mendoza identified the arrested suspects as Marvin Geronimo, 35, construction worker, of 3150 Manggahan; and Napoleon Nicor, 28, cellphone technician, of 1483 Telecom Compound, Bgy. Karuhatan. A third suspect, a certain “Tsong,” remains at large.
Women and Children’s Protection’s Desk (WCPD) investigator PO3 Learma Sarmiento said the victim was walking along Karuhatan Road on her way home at 10:30 p.m. last Friday when Nicor poked a bladed weapon on the side of her body and forced her to ride on a motorcycle, driven by Geronimo.
When they reached Daez Compound, Nicor blindfolded the victim, gagged her mouth with a rag and put a helmet on her head then travel again for a few minutes before they stopped in Malinta area.
The suspects removed her blindfold and helmet and threatened her with harm if she tried to resist. They walked along the narrow road for about five minutes until they reached a shanty allegedly owned by Tsong.
The victim told police that Geronimo forced her to lie on a makeshift bed, removed all her clothes and sexually abused her despite her pleas. Nicor and Tsong also took turns in raping the victim until she fainted due to her continuous resistance.
“May pagkakataon na talagang pinaglaruan at binaboy siya ng mga suspek dahil sa mukha pa niya inilalagay ang semen ng isa,” police said.
When the victim restored her consciousness at 3 p.m. Saturday, the suspects were all gone, prompting her to put on her clothes and went out then started to walk until she learned that she was at Dulong Tangke, Malinta.
The victim managed to return home and revealed her ordeal to her parents, who accompanied her to Valenzuela Police Community Precinct (PCP) 9.
