·1 min read

A SARI-SARI store attendant was nabbed by police in Barangay Jolomaynon, Dalaguete town, Cebu at dawn Friday, July 22, 2022, after he was accused of raping his girlfriend.

Vincent Rey Zosa, 24, was arrested at his house based on an arrest warrant issued against him by Judge Francis Rainier Navarrette of the Argao Regional Trial Court Branch 93.

Staff Sgt. Lowelyn Lim, of the Women and Children Protection Desk of the Dalaguete Police Station, told SunStar Cebu that the rape happened on February 13, 2022 and the complaint was lodged against Zosa on March 27.

Lim said the warrant was issued after Zosa’s girlfriend at the time, Annie (not her real name), sued the suspect for allegedly forcing her to have sex with him.

The rape reportedly occurred after Zosa and Annie argued after Annie caught him having an affair with another woman.

Aside from raping her, Zosa also physically assaulted her at the time of the incident, Annie claimed.

Though he was allowed to post bail for his physical abuse charge, Zosa still can’t get out of jail due to the rape charge against him, for which no bail was recommended.
