POLICE arrested a sexagenarian tricycle driver for allegedly sexually molesting his six-year old step grandchild inside his house Thursday afternoon in Pasay city.
Wilma (not her real name) who is living with her mother in Bgy. 132, reportedly went to the house of the suspect on Tolentino St., Bgy. 129 to visit her stepfather but the latter was not around when she arrived at around 5 p.m. and instead, met her step grandfather.
When Wilma went back home at around 6:20 p.m. with tears in her eyes, her 27-year-old mother asked why she was crying.
The victim revealed to her mother that her step grandfather inserted his finger inside her underwear and touched her private part.
Wilma told her mother that when she tried to run outside, the suspect grabbed and tightly held her shoulder and whispered,”Wag mong sasabihin sa iba, secret lang ito”, before she was allowed to go home.
The victim’s mother immediately sought the assistance of P/Cl. Mark Cabugos and Pat. Romelo Patron Jr., both assigned at the Pasay Police Central Park Sub-Station 4 that led to the arrest of the suspect.
Pasay police chief P/Col. Erickson Dilag said they withheld the name of the arrested suspect to protect the identity of the victim.
