Angeles City, Pampanga continues to be a hotbed of creeps.
A 41-year-old Australian man has been arrested by authorities after he was caught in one of the city’s hotels with four women — including two who are underage — he allegedly paid to have sex with him, ABS-CBN News reported yesterday.
The operation was done by the National Bureau of Investigation and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency who also caught the suspect and the women doing drugs.
Two of the women inside the hotel room with the man are aged 16 and 17 years old. Authorities also found evidence in the hotel room proving the man is a pedophile but the report did not detail what these were.
The Australian had also previously been jailed for abusing an underage girl.
According to the victims, they were offered PHP4,000 (US$74.98) to PHP5,00 (US$93.73) in exchange for sex.
Despite all this, the man still denied the accusations.
He will be charged for violating the Expanded Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2012 and Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
Incidents like this are common in Angeles, a city about 80 kilometers away from Manila that is infamous for its red light district, which first sprouted to cater to American soldiers living in the nearby Clark Air Base.
