Girl, 13, accuses man, 65, of rape

OPERATIVES from the Manila Police District-Warrant and Subpoena Section (MPD-WSS) nabbed a 65-year-old man after a 13-year-old girl accused him of molesting her the other day in Sampaloc, Manila.

Now detained at the MPD-headquarters is suspect Nestor Papa, of 25A Dos Castillas St., Sampaloc, Manila.

Major Rolando Armendez, chief of the MPD-WSS, said the arrest was made at around 12 noon by virtue of a warrant issued by Judge Ma. Celestina Mangrobang of Branch 38 which also recommended a P200,000 bailbond for the suspect’s provisional liberty.

Police said Armendez could not raise the amount so that he will just wait for his commitment order to Manila City Jail. He denied the charges against him which allegedly took place in March last year.

Appropriate charges have been filed against the suspect.
