MANILA, Philippines – A Chinese national escaped from his abductors in Parañaque City Wednesday afternoon, the city police department said.
Police said the 28 year-old victim was snatched from a resort and casino complex and was illegally detained for two days in a condominium unit at Multinational Village in Moonwalk, Parañaque City.
The Chinese national managed to slip out of the condominium unit at around 3 p.m. and sought assistance from personnel of the Philippine National Police- Maritime Group stationed in Barangay La Huerta in Parañaque.
