37-year-old man nabbed for raping niece

THE fifth most wanted person in the municipal level who has been accused of rape was arrested in Barangay Tangke, Balamban town, midwest Cebu, around 5 p.m. Tuesday, November 15, 2022.

Captain Jose Nilo Abello, deputy chief of Talisay City Police Station, together with fellow police personnel, served the warrant that led to the arrest of the suspect, only identified as Junjun, 37, a resident of Barangay Mohon, Talisay City.

Judge Romeo Reyes Jr. of Family Court 7th Judicial Region Branch 7 of Talisay City issued the warrant of arrest with no bail recommended.

Junjun’s case stemmed from a complaint filed against him by the family of the victim, who is also his niece, whom he allegedly raped since the girl was three years old until the age of six.

The suspect is now detained at the Talisay Police Station detention cell.

He will be facing a charge for violation of Republic Act 8353 or Anti-Rape Law of 1997. (BBT, TPT)
