The victim was identified as Mina,(not her real name)26-year-old of Brgy. Muzon, San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.
Four of the suspects are currently jailed while the two are still being searched out. Suspects are all from Phase 10, Bagong Silang Caloocan City. They were identified as Charlie Prieto, 20; Anthony Fernando, 25; John Leo Fajela, 17; and Oscar Vertera, 23.
In a statement, the victim said the incident occurred at around 2:30 a.m. while she and her boyfriend were walking in Phase 10, Bagong Silang and were blocked by two suspects.
The victims were then brought to a vacant lot where four of the other suspects were waiting. Not contented with forcibly taking the victims’ belongings, two of the suspects even took the chance to rape the woman in front of her boyfriend.
When the boyfriend found a chance to escape, he immediately called the authorities and eventually arrested the four while the two others fled.
