Four Chinese men were apprehended by barangay watchmen (tanods) for allegedly trying to abduct an 18-year-old Filipina in Makati City Saturday.
Police identified the suspects as Zhi Lin, Shi Jun Yi, Chen Sujo, and Xiaohui Sun. They are all temporarily residing at a condominium in Pasay City.
The victim, whose name was withheld for her protection, said six men tried to abduct her along Einstein St. in Barangay San Isidro, Makati around 10 p.m.
She was able to run away from the six men chasing her, and hid at their residence.
According to her, the Chinese men tried to forcibly take her while she was waiting for a taxi.
Her violent struggle against her abductors caught the attention of patrolling watchmen, who immediately came to her aid and arrested the suspects.
However, two of their cohorts, who are still unidentified, were able to outrun the barangay watchmen.
Makati Police are still hunting down the two men who were able to quickly flee on foot.
The four nabbed Chinese men were held at detention cell of Makati Police Headquarters.
