A rape victims runs toward police after escaping her assailants | QCPD Station 6
Police were patrolling Payatas Road, Thursday at dawn when they came across a half-naked woman shouting frantically for help.
The policemen quickly responded and learned that the woman was running away from her rapists.
The victim narrated that she was walking along Madjaas Road when two men blocked her way and declared a holdup.
With no cash to give, the victim begged her assailants.
“Nakikiusap ako dun sa dalawang lalake wala po akong pera. Sabi ko, ‘Kahit gadget wala akong pera mahirap lang po ako.’ Sabi ko sa kanila lumayas lang po ako sa amin wala po akong kapera pera (I pleaded with the two men. I said to them, “I don’t have money, not even a gadget. I’m poor.” I ran away from home, I have no money with me).
But she said the suspects were not really after money all along.
One of the men pointed a gun at her and forced her to board the motorcycle; injuring her leg in the process.
A man happened to witness the scene and quickly reported the abduction to authorities.
“May tumawag na concerned citizen sa PCP 5 then agad nagresponde yung mga kapulisan natin dahil nagsasagawa sila ng checkpoint sa bandang unahan sa Narra Street (Police personnel who were manning a checkpoint in Narra Street promptly responded after a concerned citizen called PCP 5 ),” Station 6 Commander PSupt. Joel Villanueva said.
Police located the suspects hiding in a dark, grassy area where the victim was dragged to earlier.
An encounter erupted shortly which resulted in the death of the two alleged rapists.
PCP 5 Commander PCInsp. Alfonso Saligumba recalled the scene: “So bumaba kami chineck namin pinasok namin yung area ng Legazpi Street Group 5 o Payatas. Yung nga pinutukan kami ng mga suspek, nagretaliate kami at napatay namin sila (We checked the area of Legazpi Street Group 5 or Payatas. The suspects suddenly fired at us and we retaliated until they were killed).”
Two .38 caliber firearms were recovered from the suspects.

Crime rate in the Philippines may have gone down by 20 percent in two years that President Rodrigo Duterte has been in office, but his hometown Davao City recorded the highest number of rape cases in the second quarter of 2018.
Based on the records of PNP Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management (DIDM), Davao tops the list with 42 cases.
A close second is Quezon City with 41 cases followed by Manila with 32, Cagayan de Oro, 24 and Zamboanga with 21 cases.
PNP spokesperson PSSupt. Benigno Durana suggested that LGUs should look into possible causes for the high incidence of rape in their respective areas and to note where the crime occurred.
He added that the number of rape cases committed outside the home has actually gone down.
“You cannot police the dwellings… usually, rape cases are being committed by people who are actually known to the victim,” Durana said.
In such cases, police intervention is not the solution. What may help, he said, are gender sensitivity and family values that promote respect for women. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue
