Factory worker arrested for raping own mother in Malaysia MAR 9, 2017 TAIPING (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK)
A 17–YEAR–OLD boy is facing charges before the court after he raped a 17–year–old girl in a neighborhood in Davao City.
The accused is charged with violation of the Republic Act 8353, otherwise known as The Anti-Rape Law, and the Republic Act 7610, otherwise known as The Special Protection Against Child Abuse.
In a two-page resolution approved March 3, prosecutor Rizalyn Gonzales found probable cause to charge the accused based on the complaint filed by a relative of the victim, who is a neighbor of the accused. The victim said she was sleeping in her room when awakened by the sound of the door opening at around 1 a.m. of February 27, a Monday. At first she thought it was her brother, but then someone whispered to her in the vernacular, “Do not make any noise. Do you want to die?” The girl immediately turned on the light on her phone and saw the accused holding a knife.
She tried to shout for help but the boy covered her mouth and threatened her with the knife. The boy was able to rape her. The Medico-Legal Certificate issued by the Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) showed that the victim obtained fresh hymenal transection and minimal bleeding. Also attached with the resolution is the assessment of the Davao City Social Services and Development Office (CSSDO) on the discernment of the accused, which showed that Noy acted with discernment over the crime he committed.
