MANILA, Philippines -- A woman was abducted by her former lover in Iloilo on Monday evening, police said.

The victim, Inday (not her real name), said she was working along Iznart Street in Lapaz when she was abducted by her former lover, a married man identified only as James.

She said the suspect brought her to his house where she was beaten up.

Fortunately, Inday was able to escape when James was sleeping.

The victim said she was the one who ended their relationship. She said she did not want to hurt James' wife anymore with their affair.

The suspect, however, did not like Inday's decision.

A manhunt operation has been launched against the suspect.

The Lapaz Police Women and Children's Protection Desk is still investigating the incident. -- Report from Kenneth Ladigohon, ABS-CBN News Iloilo
