MANILA, Philippines — Two persons who allegedly pimped a 13-year-old girl to a priest in June last year were arrested in Marikina City on Monday.

Gerald Ace Robenta and Luisa David, 21, were apprehended at their homes hours after Marikina Regional Trial Court Branch 192 Judge Wilfredo Maynigo issued a warrant for their arrest, city police chief Senior Superintendent Roger Quesada said.

Maynigo refused to grant bail.

Robenta, David and Msgr. Arnel Lagarejos were charged with human trafficking for the abuse of a 13-year-old girl at a motel in June last year.

No bail was recommended against Lagarejos but he managed to secure his freedom based on a technicality, police said.
