LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – A 17-year-old girl was allegedly abducted and raped somewhere in Baguio City on Monday while on her way to school.
High school senior Sherry (not her real name) is a resident of La Trinidad studying in Baguio recounted her ordeal while she was waiting for a cab in front of a grocery along Bokawkan Road.
Police reports revealed Sherry took a cab between 7 a.m. Monday and was seen next seen along the streets of Balili 3 p.m.
Police annotated statements from Sherry Monday evening, saying when she hailed the cab, the driver after asking her destination, immediately pointed a gun at her and punched her causing her to faint.
When Sherry regained consciousness, she found herself blindfolded with her school uniform missing, stripped of her shorts and inner shirt. She remembered being ordered to dance which she obeyed out of fear.
She said that while she was dancing, someone made her sniff something which made her lose consciousness for the second time. Upon waking up, she recounted to be stripped naked.
“She was still blindfolded and was no longer in her shorts and shirt,” reports said.
She was then asked of her address and was left along Balili here, after her cellular phone and cash amounting to P250 was taken by her abductor.
The case is now being handled by the Baguio City Police.
