A Baptist pastor is now in jail facing three
charges for rape in
The 46-year-old pastor
whose identity is being withheld, gave himself up to a team of policemen led by
SPO2 Mateo Requintina who served the arrest warrant
on him at Tres Fuentes in
Silay Regional Trial Court Judge Reynaldo Alon who issued the arrest warrant denied bail to the suspect. The girl in Kabankalan, whose name is being withheld by the police, was on an errand for her grandfather when she was waylaid and raped by the boy, identified as alias “Rico”, at about 5 p.m. Wednesday, DYHB reported.
Supt. Calixto Mabugat, Kabankalan police chief,
confirmed the incident but added that he could not give complete details of the
case yet because their station’s Women and Children’s Concerns center
investigators are still probing it. “Rico” was reportedly turned over to the
police and placed under the custody of social workers after he surrendered to barangay officials at about 2 p.m. yesterday. Last month a
laborer was detained also for sexual-molestation complaints in Kabankalan.
