AN 18-year-old helper was nabbed on a complaint that he raped a Grade 5 student in Sta. Mesa, Manila the other day.
Manila Police District-Special Mayor’s Reaction Team (SMaRT) chief Maj. Jhun Ibay identified the suspect as JM Pillora, of 351-B Quintana St., Sta.Mesa.
Ibay said the suspect admitted to the crime saying his physical proximity to the victim drove him to commit rape, since only a very thin wall divides them.
According to Ibay, the victim’s mother went to his office and filed a complaint against the suspect for raping her daughter last February 26 right inside his home.
The suspect was arrested and subsequently charged with statutory rape.
