August 25, 2019

A man was arrested for allegedly raping his batchmate under the bridge after their drinking session the other day in Laoac, Pangasinan.

Arrested was  Jerric Domingo, 27, resident of the said town.

Domingo was arrested based on the complaint of victim  Jennie, not her real name, 25, and also resident of the said place.

According to  Laoac Municipal Police office in charge  Police Lt. Geronimo Mamaril, the incident occurred Thursday night under the bridge in Laoac.

Prior to the incident, Jennie claimed that she had a drinking session with the suspect and some of their friends and when she was already drunk she decided to go home and asked the suspect to bring her home since the suspect has a motorcycle.

She said she trusted the suspect because they have known each other well.

Before going home the suspect brought the victim to a nearby convenient store and bought something.

However, from the convenient store, instead of bringing her home, the suspect allegedly brought the victim under the bridge  and raped her.

The incident was witnessed by passersby who reported it to their barangay  who immediately responded and arrested the suspect.

Authorities are now conducting follow-up investigation to the incident.
