A Danish man and a Filipina were arrested in Baragay Tisa, Cebu City, for conspiring to procure young girls for sexual abuse.
Police rescued two sisters, aged 11 and 12, who were allegedly pimped by 34-year-old Alona Tortosa, who lives in Sitio Orel, Mandaue City. Dane Nicola Jacobsen, aged 54, is the renter of the apartment.
The Regional Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force and the Women and Children’s Protection Desk (WCPD) of Mandaue City Police Office raided Jacobsen’s apartment at 2:30am and found the sisters sniffing sealant.
The parents of the two pimped girls sought the assistance of the local police after learning about their children’s whereabouts.
So far the pieces put together seem to be that Tortosa was prostituting the 12-year-old girl to Jacobsen – in the raid four sachets of Fed Seal, two plastic bags of sealant and a mobile phone were confiscated.
The siblings were brought to the Department of Social Welfare and Development while the suspects were detained at the Subangdaku Police Station.
The girl said they were introduced by Tortosa to Jacobsen sometime in December last year.
