The two Quezon City cops are now facing rape charges after allegedly raping a female suspect in exchange to clear her off her illegal gambling case.
The rape cases against PO1 Severiano Montalban and PO1 Jayson Portuguez have been filed at the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office.
The two were arrested after victim “Maria” filed a complaint against them. A manhunt operation was conducted by the National Capital Region Police Office against the two suspects.
On Nov. 2, Maria was arrested together with her co-horts on their illegal gambling charges but while undergoing medical examination, Maria asked the two cops if she can be released because her live-in partner is already in jail facing the same charges.
Montalban allegedly agreed to release her in exchange of sex inside the mobile patrol car. After doing the deed, Maria was again raped, this time by Portuguez.
