Members of the Parañaque Police Tambo substation arrested three Chinese men for illegally detaining their compatriot on Friday, April 7.
According to the Southern Police District (SPD), the suspects identified as Wang Dingding, Ying Jian and Yong Jin Ong were arrested at around 2 p.m. at a casino resort and hotel in Barangay Tambo, Parañaque City.
The SPD said the victim identified as Zhou Qing, 33, called his girlfriend Anne Rose Valenzuela Burca, claiming that he was detained by the suspects after losing P500,000 from a casino.
The victim told Burca that he will be sold to a Philippine Offshore Gaming Operator (POGO) company if he fails to fulfill the suspects’ demands of paying the P500,000.
Burca immediately sought assistance from the casino security guards, wherein Qing was rescued and Wang Dingding was nabbed. 
The security guards brought Dingding to Tambo substation after his arrest.
The police said after Dingding was arrested, Jian and Ong appeared at the Tambo substation to help and settle the complaint against the suspect.
However, at the Tambo police substation, the victim identified Jian and Ong as the persons who prevented him from leaving the room and threatened him to be sold at a POGO company.
The suspects are detained at the Parañaque police custodial facility and are facing charges for illegal detention.
