Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES -

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/
