Two Angeles City cops arrested for extorting Korean of one million pesos

Fields avenue in Angeles City, where two cops attempted to extort a businessman out of one million pesos.

Two Angles City policemen have been arrested for the attempt to extort a businessman for one million pesos.

Caught in an entrapment operation from the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group of the Regional Police. The officers were trying to extort one million pesos. 

The police swooped on the tourist after he had paid a ‘bar fine’ to take a sex worker from a nightclub on Fields Avenue.

Instead of taking him to a police station, they took him to a ‘safe house’ where they demanded one million pesos.

The victim gave them 200,000 peso to be set free but the two officers were relentless and pursued him in obtaining the remaining 800,000 peso they demanded. 

The two officers are in custody of the CIDG and their names or the name of the man involved have not been released.
