Around 10 p.m. a police team headed by Sr. Insp. Izel Maraviles scoured La Purisima, Tomas Claudio and Gov. Lim Avenue where five sex workers were collared.

Taken in by the police were Norshiba Marquez, 20, single from Jolo, Sulu, Arlene Baqui, 21, single, of Sta. Barbara, Arlene Olavidez, 29, single, of Camino Nuevo, Lani Locsin, 25, of Cabatangan and Julie Fronda, 40, single of Armor Village, San Jose Gusu.
