12 online male sex workers rescued
CAVITE—The Cavite police on Tuesday broke into an alleged sex den, which they believe is only part of a larger human trafficking syndicate recruiting young men into the cybersex business.
Armed with a search warrant, police raided the rented apartment of Loyd dela Cruz in Barangay Calibuyo in Tanza town at around 3 a.m. and seized eight laptops and two computer tablets, according to a text message from Cavite police director Senior Supt. Alexander Rafael.
He said Dela Cruz, from Bulacan province, is the alleged operator of the cybersex den, from which the police rescued 12 male “chatters.”
“They referred to themselves as ‘chatters’ because they chat online with the foreigners as they perform sexual acts in front of the web cam,” said Cavite intelligence officer Supt. Romano Cardiño in a phone interview. Maricar Cinco, Inquirer Southern Luzon
