Man faces rape raps
A MAN is facing charges before the court after he raped a 15-year-old girl in a barangay in Baguio District, Davao City last December 26, Tuesday.
Charged with violation of the Republic Act 8353, otherwise known as The Anti-Rape Law, is Albino Palacios Cejas, Jr. a resident of the same district.
Prosecutor Maria Estrella Dulla-Valles found probable cause to charge the accused based on a complaint filed by the 15-year-old girl and her father.
The victim, in her affidavit, attested that the accused just went inside their house looking for her father. She told Cejas to come back later on the same day, because her father was not yet around and that she is also going to take a bath.
The victim, thinking that the accused had already left, went to the water tank outside their house for a bath. But she was surprised to see the accused when she looked back. The accused then choked her and punched her on the stomach. ICT (For full story visit www. sunstar.com.ph/davao/
