A nine-year-old girl allegedly suffered trauma due to abuse by a 63-year-old man who was her grandmother’s partner in San Carlos City, Pangasinan.
Russel Semorio reported on GMA Regional TV “Balitang Amianan” on Thursday that the victim, identified as “Angelica,” was playing outside their house when the suspect called her.
The suspect allegedly took her to a hut in the middle of the grass field and abused her there.
The victim’s mother is furious about what happened to her only child.
The report said the abuse on the child began in June.
She wanted the suspect to be arrested and detained to pay for the crime committed against her daughter.
The victim’s grandmother also wanted her partner to be held accountable for allegedly committing many crimes against her.
But the suspect allegedly left their house.
Police Major Virgio Cruz, Deputy Chief of San Carlos Police, called on them to report the complaint immediately so that the suspect can be arrested. They also asked the victim’s family to file a lawsuit against the suspect as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, a man in Laguna, who was accused of raping a three-year-old woman in San Pablo, Laguna, surrendered to authorities.
In a report on GMA News “Unang Balita” on Thursday, the victim’s grandmother said that her grandaughter complained that her genitals were sore while she was taking a bath.
They immediately took the child to the hospital, and it was there that it was confirmed that the victim had been exploited.
The suspect surrendered to the police but denied the allegations against him.
He added that he just gave up because he was worried that something bad might happen to him.
The suspect has been detained and will face a corresponding lawsuit.
