TWO teenagers -- one 15-years old and the other only 14 -- were arrested by the police in Lapu-Lapu City for allegedly raping a friend at the height of their drinking session last Sunday evening, a Police Regional Office 7 report said yesterday.
The two suspects, both residents of Sitio Kadulang in Barangay Marigondon, Lapu-Lapu City were placed under arrest following a complaint from the female teenager who is a resident of a nearby village.
Two other suspects who were not immediately identified are still being hunted for the same offense, a report to PRO7 director, Brigadier General Debold M. Sinas said.
The report said that on Monday afternoon, the girl personally appeared at the local police station to file a complaint against the four.
She said she was walking with a female friend when they met the two suspects who happened to be their common friends. The teenager said she was later convinced by the two to drink liquor in their house.
After getting drunk, the complainant said one of the young suspects brought her in his room and forced her to have sex with him. After the act was consummated, the girl said that the other one did the same to her.
She added that the two other suspects tried but failed to rape her when she resisted their attempt.
Following the complaint, local policemen conducted follow-up operations which led to the arrest of the two.
