A 25-YEAR-OLD woman waiting for a ride along Quezon Avenue was abducted and then sexually assaulted by three men inside a van and then repeatedly raped inside a house in Fairview, Quezon City, at dawn on Wednesday.
Senior Insp. Cora Sandoval, head of the women?s desk of Quezon City Police District Station 10 in Kamuning, said one of the suspects, Jansen Rey Ruckenbrod, 22, and driver of the van with plate number ZRT-682, was arrested later in his house in Fairview.
The suspect was positively identified by the victim, Sandoval said. The victim?s cell phone and P150 was also taken from her by the men before she was dropped off blindfolded along Commonwealth Avenue.
Ruckenbrod, who was charged with abduction, rape and robbery in the Quezon City Prosecutor?s Office, denied the accusation.
Sandoval said they were able to trace the van used by the suspects because the victim?s sister, who was with her when she was abducted, had jotted down the vehicle?s plate number.
The van was listed under the name of Ruckenbrod?s mother. A bracelet reportedly owned by the victim was also found inside the vehicle, Sandoval said.
