Man nabbed for touching young girl's private part


The police arrested last Tuesday a 45 year-old man who allegedly fondled the private part of a 10- year-old girl in barangay Recodo, this city.

Chief Insp. Karib Muharram, Ayala Police Station Chief, immediately ordered the arrest of the suspect who was later identified as Jerry Agustin, of the same place.

Initial police investigation disclosed that the suspect invited the victim, a grade four student of Recodo, to his residence where the incident occurred at about 3:30 in the afternoon.

The girl related to the police that Agustin first offered her foods and drink. While she was eating, the suspect held her legs and inserted his hand inside her short pants then touched her private part.

According to the police, Agustin offered the girl a P100 bill and asked her to get inside his bedroom, but the victim resisted and ran outside the house.

The suspect tried to pull her hand out but the minor was able to free from the grasp and ran home to inform her parents.

The police are now readying charges against Agustin for violation of R.A. 7610, better known as the special protection of children against child abuse, exploitation and discrimination and providing penalties thereof. (Nonong Santiago)
