A MAN is charged with violation of Anti-Rape Law in relation to the Anti-Child Abuse Law, after he allegedly raped a 16-year-old girl along Roxas Avenue in Davao City on May 11, Thursday.
In a two-page resolution approved on May 19, prosecutor Armand Tirol found probable cause to charge Angelo Alexis Soriano based on the complaint filed by Ida (not her real name).
According to Ida, the incident happened around 12:30 a.m. of May 11 after she and the accused had a drinking session.
Ida, in her affidavit, said she was very drunk thus she asked the accused to take her home, instead the accused brought her to a lodging inn.
She said she can only remember that Soriano did not bring her home, and since she was very drunk and drowsy, she just lay down on a bed and fell asleep.
Ida said when she woke up, she was already naked. She added that she felt pain her private part, thus, she sought help from the employees of the inn, who gave her money to go home.
While she was on her way home, Ida saw her friends and together they approached the mobile patrol unit nearby and reported the incident to Sta. Ana Police Station.
The complainant along with the police proceeded to the place where she and the accused had drinking session, to look for the latter, who lived nearby.
Soriano was about to leave from his house when the complainant and the police arrived. Ida positively pointed Soriano as the very person, who committed the crime, which prompted the police to arrest him.
The prosecutor finds the arrest of the accused legal. (ICT)
