MANILA, Philippines - A 14-year-old girl was raped by three suspects in a pushcart right under the Metro Rail Transit station on Taft Avenue Sunday night.

The victim said she was dragged by the 3 suspects to a pushcart under the EDSA MRT station on Taft Avenue and raped.

"Pinilit po nila ako. Pumatong po sya sa akin," she told police.

Barangay tanods caught the suspects after noticing the pushcart with a blanket on top. Two of the suspects tried to run but were caught after a brief chase.

Two of the suspects are minors.

One of the suspects admitted having sex with the girl but said the girl was pimped out by an unidentified male.

"Nagsisisi po ako... At humihingi ako ng tawad sa kanya," he said.

Both the suspects and the victim are with the Pasay police while authorities look for their parents. It was learned that the suspects are runaways.

They are set to be turned over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development. Report by Raffy Santos, ABS-CBN News
