A teenager was arrested after he allegedly molested her five-month-old cousin in Riconalla, Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte last week.

Arrested was Ian Tyrus Tumial of Sitio Dungguan, Riconalla, Siocon. He was arrested by policemen during a manhunt operation.

Police said the baby’s mother left her three children in the house before he went out to get vegetables from their backyard for dinner.

Taking advantage of the situation, Tumial went inside the house and sexually molested the baby, then fled.

The incident was discovered later by the victim’s mother when the baby cried. She saw bloodstain  from the baby’s cloth.

The two sisters of the victim aged five and four told the mother about the incident.

The incident was immediately reported to the police who launched a manhunt operation with the assistance of barangay officials and cornered the Tumial in Barangay Leopan. — Noning R. Antonio
