A Chinese national who had been kidnapped at the Light Rail Transit 1 station in Monumento, Caloocan City (Metro Manila), escaped on Tuesday evening, police said.
Lim Han Zhang, 43, of 720 Carriedo Street, Quiapo, Manila, told police investigators on Wednesday that three armed men forced him into a car and sped off to the North Luzon Expressway.
The victim was on his way to attend a Moon Cake party in Malabon City (also Metro Manila) when he was abducted.
Lim said the suspects demanded P10 million in exchange for his release.
He was brought to a safehouse in Bulacan.
Lim said he was able to escape when his captors fell asleep.
