For her safety, the name of the 28-year-old Shanghai native who was allegedly abducted on September 17 while out with a friend in Angeles City, Pampanga, has been withheld. She was thereafter imprisoned in a home in Barangay Alangilan, Batangas City, for about three weeks before she was reportedly able to flee on October 6.
The woman’s boyfriend reported that two Chinese nationals and a Filipino grabbed her and took her away in a white Toyota Fortuner. After that, the woman allegedly spent 20 days chained up in a dog cage. A video purportedly showing the woman being assaulted with a baseball bat was apparently provided by her captors to her lover. In a police report, he stated that the suspects had wanted a $200,000 ransom in exchange for her release.
