Men of the Vitali police station under Chief Insp. Salvador Galvez have readied a case against a 41-year-old man for raping his daughter at Sitio Pucutin, Lower Sibulao.

Galvez said the rape took place several times and it was reported only last Thursday to the station by the 14-year-old victim along with her aunt.

Around 10:32 a.m., Leonora, 28, of Sitio Pucutin, lower Sibulao accompanied her niece to the Vitali Police Station to report that the girl was raped several times by her father identified as Ruben Delos Reyes y Cabayacruz.

Initial investigation showed that the sexual assault happened many times and the recent abuse took place on July 24 at their residence.

Police said the girl along with her two younger sisters and brother were left by their mother to Delos Reyes last December 17,  2015.

The victim told the police that the first assault happened sometime in February and thereafter repeated several times.

Galvez told DZT that his office will file rape case against Delos Reyes in violation of Republic Act 7610. — Dan Toribio
