The National Capital Region Police Office, Chief, Acting Regional Director PBGEN VICENTE D DANAO JR lauds PS – 7 Cubao, Quezon City Police District under for the successful operation which resulted in the arrest of a serial rapist and robber in Malibay, Pasay City at around 3:40 AM of December 3, 2020.
Report from the Quezon City Police District under PBGEN DANILO MACERIN, District Director, the arrested suspect was identified as Marianito Sta Maria alias “Robertson Bautista” and “Jayson Mallari”, 27 years old, residing at JP Santos St., Malibay Pasay City.
The arrest was plotted after the victim who is a freelance therapist personally appeared in their station (PS 7- Cubao) and reported about the incident that happened on November 30, 2020 at Room 306 Yale Apartelle at Yale St., Brgy. E. Rodriguez, Cubao, Quezon City after the suspect and the victim agreed through social media for a two hour ventosa massage therapy.
Based on the victim’s testimony, upon meeting up at the location, the victim asked for the payment for her service but the suspect refused and stated that his money was inside his car that was being used by his cousin. After the massage session the victim demanded for the payment but the suspect kept on reasoning out.
Later on instead of handing the money, the suspect pulled out a knife and threatened the victim. The suspect then ordered the victim to give him her money and cellphone. Subsequently, the suspect sexually abused the suspect.
This prompted the operatives to conduct a man-hunt operation against the suspect that resulted to his arrest. The suspect was brought to PS – 7 Cubao. Other victims of the suspect also appeared in the station and identified him as the same person who abused and raped them.
The suspect will be charged for Violation of Robbery with Rape before the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office.
“Ako ay labis na nagagalak sa mabilisang aksyong ginawa ng Cubao Police Station. Sa pangyayaring ito hinihikayat ko ang publiko na magsumbong kaagad sa ating kapulisan kung sila ay makakaranas ng ganitong klaseng karahasan o kung may alam silang nakakaranas ng ganitong pangyayari.” PBGEN DANAO stated.
He added “At sa mga kriminal na patuloy na gumagawa ng ganitong klaseng krimen tigilan na ninyo ang mga ganitong klase ng karahasan dahil hindi namin kayo titigilan hanggat hindi namin kayo nahuhuli at naikukulong.”
