THE police have rescued a 15-year-old girl and arrested the alleged abductor in the municipality of Molave, Zamboanga del Sur, a police official said Wednesday.
Molave police station commander Superintendent Christine Tan identified the rescued girl as Marfe Bergado of Kapatagan, Lanao del Norte.
The suspect was identified as Fedi Sinangote, 30, a singer by occupation and a resident of Lanipao, Lanao del Norte. He was nabbed when police rescued the girl around 6:30 p.m. of Sunday along Rizal Avenue, Molave municipality.
