A 15-year-old boy who allegedly raped a 17-year-old girl he met on social media has been arrested on Friday in Cebu City.
According to an initial report by Minglanilla Police, the victim under the name “Jenny” went to their station with her brother-in-law to file a rape complaint against the 15-year-old suspect.
In Jenny’s testimony, she and the minor suspect became friends on Facebook on November 13 until they became a couple because of the continuous exchange of chats in FB Messenger. They decided to meet this November 15, personally.
Jenny said the 15-year-old boy brought her to his house at Barangay Poblacion, Ward II, Minglanilla, and it was there that the 17-year-old girl was raped.
The victim told her relatives about the incident. They immediately sought help from the police, and Jenny pointed out the area where she was raped.
In a follow-up operation by the police, the young suspect was arrested at their home and is now in custody.
