AT LEAST two male homosexuals landed in jail after they were accused by a 15-year-old boy of sexual molesting him on Sunday evening, August, 7, 2022, in the northern Cebu town of Liloan.

Police Major Ramil Judilla Morpos, chief of Liloan Police Station, identified the suspects as Jonel Alin Palang, 28, of Purok Nangka, Garing, Consolacion; and Rennard Rosales Sumotia, 25, a food vendor from Sitio Lapyahan, Barangay Labogon, Mandaue City.

The 15-year-old victim from Barangay Jubay, Liloan identified only as Jun, who is now in Grade 11, narrated to the police that he was walking along the roadside when Palang approached him, held his arm and touched his genital.

The two then forced him to ride a motorcycle and brought him to a secluded area in Barangay Poblacion, where Palang ordered the minor to strip naked, perform a blow job on him and swallow his semen, while Sumotia acted as lookout.

Jun alleged that Palang also took videos of their illicit acts.

The Liloan police arrested Palang in a follow-up operation around 11 p.m. on the same day and Sumotia at 9 a.m. the following day.

The two suspects will be facing charges for violation of Republic Act 7610, or the Special Protection of Children Against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act, and Republic Act 9995, or the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act. (GPL, TPT)
