A self-employed stepfather is facing charges for allegedly raping his five-year-old stepdaughter in Sta. Cruz, Manila.
Godfrey Calag, 26, of Street 30, Manila North Cemetery, Blumentritt, Sta. Cruz, was arrested on the complaint of the girl’s grandmother.
A report from the Manila Police District (MPD)-Station 3 said the victim was left the other day by the grandmother in the care of the suspect since she had to work.
When she got home, the grandmother said the girl had told her that the suspect ‘touched’ her.
The grandmother said she immediately checked on the girl’s private part and saw that it was swollen and excreting foul odor.
She took the victim to a doctor and it was then that the child was found to have been sexually molested and had infection.
The doctor reportedly advised the grandmother to lodge a formal complaint with the police.
