Two girls, both 15 years old, sought the help of police in Cagayan over the weekend claiming to have been victims of abduction and rape.
The minors told police the ordeal started with them accepting a ride from several men on board what they described as a dark green van while walking along a bridge in Centro Sur, Gattaran here, on Nov. 28.
The victims said they acquiesced to the offer upon seeing two other young girls already inside the van.
The two related they passed out during the ride, waking up to find themselves already naked inside a house.
The suspects allegedly raped them repeatedly as with the two other young females they saw inside the van.
They identified one of their captors as a certain Mike.
The two said they were released around 9:40 pm on Dec. 2 near the Don Mariano Marcos National High School with their abductors threatening them with certain death if they report the matter to police.
The police brought the two to the Dr. Tomas Nolasco Hospital for medical examination before they were referred to the Municipal Social Welfare Development (MSWD) in Gattaran.
