A teen-ager escaped from a 59-year old man who tried to molest her inside a cemetery in BarangaySta Maria last Saturday.

The suspect was identified as Jose Enriquez Carpio, married, and a resident of Governor Ramos Avenue, Sta Maria.

A report from the Police Regional Office-9 (PRO-9) said that the suspect initially bribed the 13-year old girl to show her private part to him.

The girl reportedly ran away but the suspect chased and tried to grab her.

The girl was able to escape and sought assistance from her sister who reported the incident to the police.

Police immediately launched a pursuit operation which led to the arrest of the suspect.

The suspect is now detained at the Sta Maria Police Station.  (LAJ)
