Girl, 8, suffers sexual ordeal from stepdad

A 45-year-old sidecar boy is now facing charges after he was accused of molesting for a period of one year his eight-year-old stepdaughter in Tondo, Manila.

The victim’s mother, aged 36, told the police that it was only recently when she discovered that her live-in partner Rosito Mensorado had been molesting her daughter in their home at Aroma Street in Tondo each time she would leave her in the care of the suspect while she worked as a vendor.

According to the mother, the molestation took place twice a week and that she found out about it when the girl narrated her ordeal, after she noticed blood on her underwear and she asked what happened. Each time, the suspect reportedly inserted his fingers and even toes, in the victim’s private part.

On learning of her child’s ordeal the mother accompanied the victim, a Grade 1 pupil, to the Manila Police District-Station 1 where she lodged a complaint, after bringing the child to a hospital for a medical examination.

The suspect was arrested and charged with rape before the Manila Prosecutor’s Office.
