Sunday, September 8, 2013
A GAY person was arrested in an entrapment operation by the Women and Children’s Protection Desk (WCPD) of the San Pedro Police Station after attempting to prostitute a minor.
The suspect, said to be a college student in Cotabato City, was arrested inside a hotel along Camus Street around 1:20 a.m.
The WCPD said that the mother of a 16-year-old approached them after learning that her daughter was brought to Davao City from their home in Cotabato by the gay suspect.
They learned the whereabouts of the girl when the mother asked her through text.
The WCPD immediately conducted an entrapment operation with a police officer acting as a customer.
The police officer met the suspect and victim at the hotel.
The victim said she accompanied the suspect because he was recommended by her friend.
The police were still checking the suspect's phone for more information and evidence as of Sunday.
The manager of the hotel also filed a complaint against the suspect because he was not able to pay for their bill which amounted to P800.
The suspect is currently in the police's custody while charges are being prepared to be filed against him in court.
