OLONGAPO CITY — At least 27 people were arrested on Wednesday night, in a police raid on an Internet and online gaming cafe suspected to be operating as a cybersex den here.
The raiding team from the Philippine National Police-Anti Cybercrime Group (PNP-ACG) also seized more than 50 computers and transmission devices from the cafe located on the third floor of Joromas building on Rizal Avenue in Barangay West Tapinac here.
