A Girl was Alledgely Kidnapped and Abused for 3 Days by Her Ex-Boyfriend She Met via Facebook

A 23-year-old woman was kidnapped, hurt, and allegedly abused for three days by her ex-boyfriend whom she only met on Facebook.

According to reports on Wednesday, the girl whose identity will be hidden as Maria still suffers from trauma and still cries constantly.

The trauma she incurred in the incident is etched deep in her memories and is hard to forget.

In an interview, she said that she broke up with the suspect with whom she first met via Facebook because of the physical abuse she received from him before.

Maria also narrated the day of the kidnapping. “Tinutukan ako ng baril at sapilitang isinakay ng suspek sa kotse nya nung lumabas ako ng bahay,” she said, recounting the incidents last Saturday. (He pointed a gun at me and forced me to go into his car when I got out of the house.)

“Pinagbantaan niya ako na papatayin niya raw ako ‘pag pumalag ako,” she continued. (He threatened me that he will kill me if I fight back.) She went unconscious, she said, after the ex-lover choked and punched her.

When she finally woke up, she was already in a condo unit of the suspect located in Cainta, Rizal. From that day, she has been imprisoned for three days. The man also tied her hands and feet on the bed and every day she was trapped, she was s3xually humiliated and physically abused.

On Monday, she managed to devise a plan to escape the claws from his ex-boyfriend when he brought her to a mall located in Cainta to have a tattoo. Seeing an open opportunity, Maria ran and held on to the security guard of the mall and made a scene. The suspect tried to pull her back but to no avail. He escaped when they were told to go to the mall’s management office.

Currently, the suspect who is not named is still on the run and police authorities are conducting a search for the man. He is accused of forcible abduction and violation of Republic Act 9262: An act defining violence against women and their children, providing for protective measures for victims, prescribing penalties therefore, and for other purposes.
