MANILA, Philippines—A kidnapping suspect was arrested Friday at the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) headquarters in Manila while attending a preliminary investigation of another case where he is a witness, said Justice Secretary Leila De Lima.

Anthony Aquipel was arrested by NBI agents based on an arrest warrant issued by Calamba Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 35 Presiding Judge Gregorio Velasquez, said De Lima.

Aquipel, a resident of Bgy Tabon 1, Kawit, Cavite, allegedly abducted a minor last February in Laguna.

He will be temporarily detained at the NBI headquarters along Taft Ave, Manila until the Calamba trial court issues an order specifying where he should be detained during his trial.

Kidnapping for ransom is a non-bailable offense that carries a penalty of life imprisonment.
