Two rape incidents were recorded in Sibulan, Negros Oriental, in less than a week.
Sibulan police records show that the first rape incident involved a 17-year-old girl and two brothers, who allegedly took turns in molesting her during a public dance at Sitio Ata-ata, Barangay San Antonio, Sibulan last week.
Initial police investigations showed that one of the suspects, a certain Alejandro, 23, single, of Calabnugan, Sibulan is a boyfriend of the victim. Reports said that after having sexual intercourse with her, the suspect called his older brother, Joemar, 33, married, to take over.
The girl, who is from Camanjac, reported the incident to her mother, and sought the help of Barangay Captain Bartolome Aranas who effected a citizens’ arrest on the suspects, a few hours after the incident.
It was later learned that the victim’s father is a relative of the suspects.
The second incident was in Sibulan on Sunday afternoon, where a four-year-old child was molested by her first cousin who is a “pot-pot” or trisikad driver. The incident was reported to the police by the victim’s mother who allegedly saw the crime. The mother further disclosed that she saw her daughter on the lap of the suspect who had no pants or underwear, police said.
Charges are being prepared against the three suspects.*JG
