A housewife who resisted a man’s sexual advances was bludgeoned to death at Purok Uno, Barangay Bokong, Labangan, Zamboanga del Sur last Wednesday.

Chief Insp. Helen Galvez, Police Regional Office-9 Information Officer, identified the suspect as Jomar Braga y Orot, 20 years old, jobless.

Galvez said that the 36-year-old housewife was alone when the suspect suddenly forced his way into her house.

He then attempted to sexually molest the victim who resisted his advances.

Apparently irked, the suspect then got hold of a hammer and struck the head of the victim several times, causing her death.

Seeing his victim dead, Braga then fled from the house and went to a relative who later convinced the suspect to surrender.

Braga was placed under the custody of the Labangan Municipal Police Station and is currently facing Murder charges.  (Remus Ong)
