Pastor arrested in Daet for kidnapping, rape

DAET, CAMARINES NORTE – Two criminal complaints for the violation of Article 270 of the Revised Penal Code (Kidnapping and Failure to Return a Minor) and Republic Act 8353 (The Anti-Rape Law of 1997) have been filed against a pastor who allegedly kidnapped two students.

The complaints were filed by personnel of the Anti-Kidnapping Group (AKG) of Camp Crame, Quezon City through inquest proceeding in the Antipolo City Prosecution Office.

The suspect was identified as Jose Sumbillo y Gonzales, 44 years old, and a resident of Sitio Daang Bakal, Antipolo City.

According to the victims, they were kidnapped from their residence in Sitio Daang Bakal, Antipolo City sometime in May 2014. They were taken to Candaba, Pampanga where they stayed for some time. On June 5, they were brought to Daet.

On June 12, the Office of Anti-Kidnapping Group in Camp Crame received information about the alleged kidnapping of two minors who were believed to be taken somewhere in Daet.

The suspect purportedly tried to extort money from the father of one of the victims. He requested that the money be sent via LBC.

Meanwhile, a special team composed of PNP personnel was created to track the whereabouts of the suspect and to rescue the victims. Said team conducted a surveillance of all LBC outlets within the town of Daet, where the suspect was expected to receive the money.

The suspect was arrested on June 14 at the LBC outlet at Vinzons Avenue, Daet, after he claimed the amount of P700, which was sent by the father of one of the victims.

The police confiscated from the suspect the transaction receipt as well as two Cherry Mobile cellphones.

The suspect revealed to the authorities that he brought the victims to the El Shaddai Compound in Ricafrente St., Barangay Gubat, Daet.

The same team, together with Mr. Emmanuel Ebona, a social worker and a staff member of the Daet Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO), and PO3 Angelita Avila Caña of the Women and Children Protection Desk, thus proceeded to said address.

There, they found the two victims, along with the suspect’s three-year-old son.

The victims were brought to the Daet Municipal Police Station for documentation and temporary custody.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
