A 26-year-old separated woman was robbed and raped in front of her boyfriend by two of the six robbers in Caloocan City yesterday.
In a report from PhilStar.com, four of the suspects are currently jailed while the two are still being hunted down. The four were identified as Charlie Prieto, 20; Anthony Fernando, 25; John Leo Fajela, 17; and Oscar Vertera, 23, all from Phase 10, Bagong Silang in the said city.
The victim was identified as Mina (not her real name) of Brgy. Muzon, San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.
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 Prieto and Fernando.
The two 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 police and eventually arrested the four while the two others fled.
