After receiving this information, the SPD said the Makati City Police immediately went to the said hotel and tracked down the suspect. Authorities managed to locate and arrest the alleged abductor, who was identified as a certain Cai Guijia, male, 26 years old, from Makati City’s Barangay Tejeros. Police said Guijia is also a Chinese national.

The victim was also rescued during the operation.
