Saturday, January 19, 2013
A MASSEUR is facing charges before the Regional Trial Court (RTC) after he allegedly abused a 15-year-old boy inside a massage parlor in Davao City.
Charged with rape and sexual assault was identified as Ricky Alvarez, a massage attendant and resident of Davao City.
Prosecutor Gaye T. Canete-Magdagasang found probable cause to charge the accused based on the affidavit/complaint of the mother of the victim.
Court records showed the victim was with his parents having a body massage in one of the spas in the city. The victim was wearing his boxer's shorts when the accused instructed him to take it off.
The boy thought it was normal for him to be naked considering it was his first time to enter a massage parlor. But while being massaged, the accused allegedly inserted his finger to the anus of the boy.
The boy reported the incident to his parents, thus the filing of the case.
"Based on the complaint, the probable cause exists to charge the accused for one count of rape including sexual assault under the Revised Penal Code," Canete-Magdagasang said.
The suspect is presently detained in a city police precinct.
