“There is no ‘Bonnet Gang’ in Mexico, Pampanga,” Mayor Teddy Tumang has assured; allaying fears that there is a certain group that is roaming around the municipality to abduct and r**e women.
In an interview posted by GMA News on YouTube, Tumang explained that while the suspects in the recent r**e cases in the municipality are wearing a bonnet, such incidents are not enough to prove the existence of a ‘Bonnet Gang’.
“Hindi po nagpapabaya ang ating kapulisan. Wala pong umiikot na mga Bonnet Gang dito….Hindi naman ganung karami ‘yung mga nare-r**e dito sa atin, isolated lang po,” the mayor said.
[Our policemen are not neglecting their responsibilities. There is no Bonnet Gang here…. In fact, we do not even have a lot of r**e cases here, isolated cases only.]
Tumang also clarified that different incidents of r**e were found by social worker Josie Soliman of the Child A***e Protection Network. He said just because the suspects in the said incidents were wearing bonnets, it doesn’t automatically mean they came from one group.
He said they plan to file a case against Soliman for disseminating wrong information and causing panic among the residents.
