A 54-year-old man was arrested last Wednesday for raping two granddaughters of his live-in partner in Barangay Sta. Maria.

Police identified the suspect as Romulo Bugtong Manalim, a native of Magsaysay, Pagadian City and presently residing inside the Mas compound with his live-in partner and the two victims.

The victims, sisters aged 16 and 13, sought the assistance of a school teacher to accompany them to the police station.

The victims told police that they have been sexually abused by Manalim since the year 2010.

They added that their grandmother, who was identified as the suspect’s live-in partner, is aware of what has been going on between them and the suspect.

The suspect was arrested during a follow-up operation and was detained at the Sta. Maria Police Station pending the filing of charges in court. (Dan Toribio)
