Fake doctor nabbed in Pasay after botched breast, cheek enhancements
MANILA, Philippines — A man who pretended to be a doctor was arrested in Pasay City on Thursday after a woman complained that her breast and cheek bones turned red and itchy years after being injected with oil silicone by the suspect.
According to the Pasay City Police, suspect Crisanto Ordono in 2015 enticed Mary Grace Policarpio, a 37-year-old businesswoman, that he can enhance her breast and cheek bones with oil silicone injections.
Police said the victim agreed to pay Ordono P150,000 in exchange for the procedure. But she claimed that her breast and cheek bones turned itchy and red and developed blood clots years after receiving the injections.
According to police, Policarpio later went back to Ordono who promised that he will remove the oil silicone. He even offered to have the victim’s buttocks enhanced.
Police said the victim then became suspicious and found out from the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) that Ordono is not a registered medical doctor.
The victim agreed to schedule another procedure with the suspect in a hotel, but this time she coordinated with the police who staged an entrapment at about 3:05 p.m. on Thursday.
According to police, they also arrested the suspect’s boyfriend Adrian Gobrin, whom they said is Ordono’s alleged cohort in his criminal activities.
During the entrapment, police seized from Ordono several pieces of needles, syringes, anesthesia, and oil silicone.
Ordono and Gobrin were brought to the Pasay City Police Station as complaints for estafa and violation of Republic Act 2382 or the Medical Act of 1959 are being readied against them. /muf
