OPERATIVES from the Manila Police District- Baseco Police Community Precinct (PCP)  nabbed a 14-year-old boy after he was accused of raping a 13-year-old girl in Port Area, Manila the other day. 

The victim told police probers the rape took place at around 8 p.m. Monday night in a dark alley in Baseco.

The complainant claimed that she was with friends when the suspect summoned her.  Thinking that the suspect will merely tell her something, she went with him.

The names of the victim and the suspect are withheld owing to their age.

After walking a certain distance and reaching a dark alley, the suspect reportedly pulled and then raped her, all along warning her against telling her parents or anyone about the incident.

The victim said that out of fear that the incident will happen again, she decided to tell her mother about her ordeal. Her mother then accompanied her to the nearest PCP to lodge a formal complaint.

Supt. Igmeldio Bernaldez, station commander of the  Ermita Police Station, had the boy subjected to inquest proceedings before the Manila Prosecutor’s Office for proper evaluation.

In the meantime, he was brought to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
