THREE Chinese were arrested on Monday evening in Pasay City for alleged kidnapping of a fellow Chinese, police said on Tuesday.

The suspects were identified as Li Gen, He Xiang, and Wang Jun who were apprehended at the Skyway Toll Plaza in Villamor Airbase.

Initial investigation showed that police spotted Wang, the driver of a Chevrolet car, for not wearing his seat belt.

Police flagged down the car and saw He and Li beating the victim, Zhou Zheng Qiang.

Zhou told authorities that the suspects kidnapped him for not paying P950, 000 which he used for illegal gambling.

The suspects are detained at the Pasay City Police Station as charges of kidnapping were being readied against them. JAN ARCILLA
