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.

 

Instant Justice

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.

PNP, may payo sa mga magbabakasyon ngayong holiday season

Robie de Guzman   •   December 23, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Nagbigay ng payo ang Philippine National Police (PNP) sa mga nagbabalak umuwi sa probinsiya o kaya ay magbakasyon sa ibang lugar ngayong holiday season.

Ayon sa PNP, aktibo ang mga masasamang loob sa mga ganitong panahon dahil marami ang umaalis ng kani-kanilang tahanan upang samantalahin ang mahabang bakasyon.

Kaya paalala nito sa publiko, tiyaking nakasara ng maayos at doblehin ang lock ng mga bintana at pinto.

Ibilin sa mapagkakatiwalaang kapitbahay kung kailan babalik upang agad maitawag sa mga otoridad kung may makitang ibang tao sa naiwang bahay.

Ayon kay PNP Spokesperson Police Colonel Rhoderick Augustus Alba, mahalaga ring ibilin sa mga sekyu ng subdivision na huwag magpapapasok ng ibang tao na nais magtungo sa naiwang bahay.

“Make sure na secured ang inyong mga bahay lalo na kung matitirang magbabantay, this will hinder criminals o yung akyat bahay from trying to trespass at maiwasan ang mga nakawan,” ani Alba.

Paalala rin ng pulisya, iwasan ang pagpo-post sa social media ng “at the moment” (ATM) na mga larawan kung saan makikitang wala kayo sa inyong tahanan.

“’Wag nating ipo-post kung nasaan tayo, ‘wag tayong mag ‘ATM’ kung baga, marami kasing ganyan maglalagay ng ‘at this moment’ nandito siya so mamo-monitor po kung nasaan kayo,” ang payo ni Major General Vicente Danao Jr., ang direktor ng National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO).

Sa mga bibiyahe, iwasang magsuot ng mamahaling alahas at huwag maglalabas ng mga mamahaling gadget na maaaring makatawag pansin sa mga kawatan.

Dapat ring maging alerto ang publiko lalo na sa mga matatao at pampublikong lugar upang hindi masalisihan.

“Ang advise lang po namin diyan kailangan po tayong mapagmatyag, vigilant kasi some groups would take advantage of it lalong-lalo na po kung namimili tayo ‘wag hayaan na naka-open yung kanilang mga bags at pitaka ay ‘wag idinidisplay,” ani Danao.

Pagtitiyak ng pulisya, tuloy ang kanilang pagpapatrolya at mas maigting ang ipinatutupad na police visibility upang mapangalagaan ang seguridad ng publiko. (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lea Ylagan)

QC records 66% increase in violence against women and children

Aileen Cerrudo   •   September 27, 2021

The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) reported a 66.67% increase in violence against women and children (VAWC) cases and a 21.54% increase in rape cases.

QCPD Director BGen. Antonio Yarra reported an increase in VAWC and rape cases in the first eight months of the year compared to the same period last year.

He also noted that the pandemic played a significant role in the upward trend, as most families are at home.

This was compounded by the financial difficulties experienced by many families, resulting in domestic conflict.

Most of the recorded cases were of physical abuse, with psychological abuse a distant second.

“We have launched a campaign to make women aware of their rights and make them advocates so they will be encouraged to report abuses,” he said.

QC Mayor Joy Belmonte expressed concern on the issue and rallied victims or their relatives and friends to report such abuses through the QC Protection Center Hotline 122, or to the barangay and QCPD women’s desk.

She also directed concerned local authorities to closely monitor and act swiftly on calls and reports pertaining to VAWC and other gender-based incidents.

“We cannot let any QCitizen suffer from gender-based violence in Quezon City especially during the pandemic,” she said.

Belmonte reported that the Quezon City government together with the QCPD are set to launch a unified information management system to facilitate the monitoring and hasten the investigation of VAWC cases. –AAC

Senate Committees approve proposal to increase statutory rape age to 16

Aileen Cerrudo   •   October 1, 2020

The Senate Committees have approved the proposal to increase the statutory rape age to 16.

The Senate Committee on Justice and Human Rights and the Senate Committee on Women, Children, Family Relations, and Gender Equality approved the proposed measure on Thursday (October 10). Aside from the increase in the statutory rape age, the age for sexual consent was also raised from 12 to 16.

Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri, one of the authors of the bill, said it is time to amend the law especially due to the increase of sexual violence cases among children.

“As legislators, we need to ensure that our children are protected and that we set measures that will mitigate if not totally eradicate these alarming cases and statistics on sexual violence against children and teenage pregnancies,” Zubiri said.

The Philippines currently has the age of sexual consent at 12 which is the lowest in Asia and among the lowest in the world. -AAC (with reports from Harlene Delgado)
