AN American actor in online sex shows and three Filipino production crew members were arrested by operatives of the PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group in Angeles City on Tuesday night, PNP chief Gen. Debold Sinas said yesterday.
Citing a report from ACG director Brig. Gen. Robert Rodriguez, Sinas said the operation also resulted in the rescue of two teenaged women who were reportedly forced to have sex with the American.
Arrested were American Easton Scot Sanderson, 34; Reneilyn Robles, 22; Jann Arielle Mondejar, 23; and Shirley Martinez, 22.
Sinas said they were nabbed by operatives of the ACG-Central Luzon, led by Lt. Col. Nelvin Ricohermoso, at Unit JO3, Kandi Tower in Angeles City at around 11 p.m. Tuesday.
“The PNP is going after traffickers who prey on women for sexual exploitation. We urge the public to report to us similar illegal activities for immediate police intervention,” said Sinas.
During debriefing, the rescued victims – aged 18 and 19 – said they were recruited by Mondejar supposedly for modeling and photo shoots.
But when they met Sanderson, the victims claimed they were forced to have sexual intercourse with the American while Robles and Martinez reported took videos to be uploaded in pornographic sites.
Sinas said the ACG is coordinating with the US Federal Bureau of Investigation in Manila regarding the porn sites where the videos are uploaded. The uploaded videos, he said, can be used as additional evidence in court.
