Police said the two and another companion accosted a 22-year-old woman and her boyfriend, 21, while the couple were about to get inside the boyfriend’s Ford Everest SUV at the mall carpark .


Villareal and Cordero took turns in raping the woman while her boyfriend watched. One of them drove the SUV toward the 5th district.

SPO2 Bobby Gayagoy, investigator of Barotac Viejo town, said the suspects were arrested after the SUV had a flat tire in Bangga Puerto Princesa, Barotac Viejo.

The suspects are now detained at Barotac Viejo police detention cell pending the filing of charges.
