Widower arrested for impregnating daughter

·2 min read

A WIDOWER was arrested in Barangay Mantalongon, Dalaguete town, southern Cebu for allegedly impregnating his 15-year-old daughter and making her a “sex slave” for several years.

Operatives of Dalaguete Police Station arrested Juan (not his real name), 50, at around 5:15 p.m. on Friday, June 10, 2022.

Police arrested Juan after they received complaints that he allegedly sexually abused Anna (not her real name) and even impregnated her.

Police believed that Anna was pregnant after seeing her belly when they arrested Juan.

Anna will be brought to a hospital in Cebu City for a psychological test and a medical examination on Monday, June 13, to determine how many months she is pregnant.

“Ana intawon siya nga ‘Si Papa may nakapabuntis nako’ dungan sa pagpatulo sa luha (She said she was impregnated by her father as tears fell from her eyes),” said Major Gilfred Baroman, chief of Dalaguete Police Station.

Baroman said it was one of Anna’s older siblings who reported her ordeal to them.

Just before Juan was arrested, Anna reportedly told her sibling that her father was sexually abusing her again.

This prompted the sibling to report the matter to police.

Anna is the youngest of Juan’s five children.

Juan became a widower after his wife died 11 years ago.

Baroman told SunStar Cebu that Juan reportedly started molesting Anna when she was still five years old.

“Nahimo niyang sex slave ang bata. Kanang mahubog ni (papa) kamangon niya! Unya mahadlok intawon motug-an,” Baroman said.

(The child became his sex slave. If he got drunk, he would crawl in and and molest her. The child was afraid to tell anyone).

To keep Anna silent, Juan allegedly threatened her every time he had sex with her.

The abuse eventually stopped after Juan’s other children reported his deeds to the police.

The station’s Women and Children Protection Desk is already preparing a complaint against Juan which will be filed next week.

Juan will face a charge of Incestuous Rape in relation to Republic Act 7610 or the Special Protection of Children Against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act.
