AUTHORITIES have arrested a man on Friday, September 6, for allegedly raping his 13-year-old daughter ‘50 times’ in five years, in Agusan, Cagayan de Oro City.
Police identified the suspect as “Gilbert”, 39, who later admitted that he had repeatedly raped his daughter since she was only eight years old.
Police Captain Mario Mantala, Police Station 6 chief, said the suspect may have raped his own daughter 50 times.
Mantala said it was the victim who rushed to the police station, barely dressed, to report his father who was about to rape her again that day.
The suspect, upon arrest, presented an identification card and introduced himself as a member of a group called Philippine Military Intelligence Group and showed his gun along with a handcuff he allegedly owns.
Confiscated from the actual possession and control of the suspect were an S and W 357 magnum revolver, six live bullets, an identification Card of PHIL-MIG , a handcuff and a wallet.
The suspect will face attempted rape, illegal possession of firearms, usurpation of authority, and multiple rape charges.
Mantala said they are set to file the cases today.
Meanwhile, the child is now under the custody of his grandmother.
Based on a physician’s examination, traces of semen were found in the victim’s private part.
“Ang suspect niingon nga na-rape daw niya ang iyang anak kay gimingaw daw siya sa iyang asawa nga dugay na sila nagbulag ug naa karon sa gawas sa nasud,” he said.
The military for its part, denied that the suspect belongs to the army.
Captain Reggie Go, spokesperson of the 4th Infantry Division said the organization could only be made up by the suspect.
