Barber loses possessions to female sex workers in downtown Cebu City

A BARBER who hails from Camotes Island reported to the police after he was robbed of his possessions by the two commercial sex workers while checking into a lodging house along Manalili Street in downtown Cebu City, at around 4 a.m. on Friday, April 5, 2024.

Romnick, 28, whose real name is withheld, reported to the Waterfront Police Station that he and his cousins were heading home after having drinks in one of the bars in the downtown area when the two female workers approached him and offered their services.

The victim claimed that after having some negotiations, they entered the lodging house.

However, he was able to fall asleep after their sexual encounter, and when he woke up, his phone, money, and watch all disappeared.

"Gidala ko nila didto sa lodging house wala nakoy kalibutan, nakamatngun kog buot mga alas 4 nahuboan nako, hasta akong cellphone, kwarta nako wala na, akung pitaka didto na sa ilawom sa katre walay sulod katong akung around 2,500 to 3k," Romnick said.

(I was unconscious when they brought me to a lodging house. When I woke up, I was already undressed, my cell phone was already gone and my wallet containing P2,500 to P3,000 was already under the bed, empty).

According to one of the investigators at the Waterfront police station who wished to remain anonymous, this is how commercial sex workers in Colon operate.

A copy of the CCTV tape that showed the victim and the two female sex workers talking outside the lodging house before they went inside was obtained by the Waterfront police.

Following the incident, the police will patrol the downtown area at dawn to shoo away any women who hang around in the dark places. (AYB, TPT)
