An American and his three Filipino cohorts were arrested in Angeles City, Pampanga for allegedly running a cybersex den, the police reported yesterday.

The foreign national was identified as Easton Scot Sanderson, 34, while his accomplices were Reneilyn Robles, 22; Jann Mondejar, 23; and Shirley Martinez, 22. The group was arrested in Sanderson’s house located in the village of Malabanias on Tuesday evening.

Authorities also rescued two women, aged 18 and 19, from Sanderson’s home. The American recruited the teens for some modeling work, but they allegedly ended up being sexually abused by Sanderson. Robles and Martinez allegedly filmed the teens’ molestation on video, with the intention of selling it to pornographic websites.

“Modelling was the group’s ‘front’ and that was what was written on the women’s contracts, but once they are in the room, there’s sexual intercourse and the Filipinos record it on video,” Philippine National Police Anti-Cybercrime Unit chief Lt. Col. Nelvin Ricohermoso told news channel UNTV.

The police are still trying to identify the websites where the suspects have uploaded the videos. The suspects will be charged for allegedly violating Republic Act 10364 (Anti-Human Trafficking Act) in relation to Section 6 of Republic Act 10175 (Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012).
