CIDG 7 nabs man accused of raping own daughter

CEBU Province’s third most wanted was arrested by operatives of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) Cebu City Field Unit in Barangay Quiot on Tuesday, November 22, 2022.

The warrant was issued on Monday, November 21.

The 36-year-old accused, an air-conditioner technician, is charged with statutory rape.

No bail was recommended.

Colonel Peter Miguel Tagtag Jr., CIDG Central Visayas chief, said they will not release the accused’s name since the victim is his own 14-year-old daughter.

He said the accused, a known illegal drug drug user, was high on shabu when he sexually assaulted his daughter seven times.

Tagtag said Tuesday’s operation was part of Oplan Pagtugis, or the campaign against wanted persons, one of the CIDG’s flagship programs. (AYB, PJB)
