According to police, Castillon had been drinking with his friends, and when he got drunk, he called the five victims who were playing.
The victims said to the police the suspect gave them P20 each. The carpenter then put them on his lap and touched the different parts of their bodies.
The children told their parents what happened, which resulted in the suspect’s arrest. Castillon, meanwhile, denied the allegations against him.
But based on the medical examination of the children, three of them were positively molested.
The carpenter will face appropriate charges for molesting the five girls.
