8 Spa Staff Illegal Detained a Chinese National to Extort Money Arrested
Police authorities arrested eight (8) spa staff after they allegedly detained a Chinese national illegally to extort money from him in Quezon City.
According to the police report, eight spa employees imprisoned the foreign national for many hours and demanded money in exchange for his release. Qin Zhi Xuan, a 29-year-old physical therapist from Manila’s Gold Mine Tower, was the victim.
Jaypee Mangalindan, 22, Ralph Garma, 29, Rustom, Laurencio, 22, Glenn Garcia, 26, July Monterde, 20, of 870 Layao St., Balut, Tondo Manila, Joel Mariano, 35, Carlo Villador, 20, and Realan Labto, 33, were detained, according to QCPD Director PBRIG General Antonio Yarra.
According to Holy Spirit Station 14 commander PLT Col Jeffrey Bilaro, the rescue operation at the JAS Salon and SPA took place at about 4:30 a.m. Around 10:45 p.m., a confidential informant went to the police station and stated that there was a Chinese person inside the said SPA who was being barred from leaving.
As a result, the police started an operation to save Qin, and the suspects were apprehended. A caliber 45 with two magazines, a red Mitsubishi Mirage with the license plate B6 D319, and six cellular phones were taken from the eight.
The suspects wanted money from the Chinese guy, and it was arranged that he would withdraw money from his bank by 10:00 a.m., according to Bilaro. However, the transaction could not be completed owing to his team’s successful rescue of the victim.
It was previously reported that the suspects conversed with the victim, pretending to deliver a massage as a cause for the Chinese to visit the SPA. Eight people have been arrested, and two of them have been charged with Serious Illegal Detention, Robbery (Extortion), and violating RA 10591.
