Police arrest construction worker tied to teen’s rape

Correspondent .

AUTHORITIES on Sunday arrested a construction worker for allegedly raping a 16-year-old store worker in the city public cemetery in Camaman-an, this city.

But the suspect, Sonny Boy Quitoriano, vehemently denied raping the minor, asserting that the teenager consented to have sexual relations with him.

Quitoriano, a resident of Camaman-an who works at a road construction project in Kauswagan, maintained that he and the teenager have been sweethearts for two months already.

“Amo tong sinabotan. Nanuroy mi sa menteryo unya estoryaha hangtud nga nagka sinabot sa paghimo sa usa ka butang,” Quitoriano said.

Quitoriano said the place where it happened was at the Bolonsiri cemetery, near the teenager’s house.

Quitoriano said he was caught aback when the victim’s uncle confronted him.

He claimed he was so afraid that he was forced to admit that he raped the teenager.

Quitoriano said he was also beaten up by a group of men shortly before the police came.

The construction worker was detained at Cogon police station. He asked her parents to forgive him for having sexual relations with their daughter, and added that he would even ask her hand in marriage.

But the teenager’s parents are reportedly bent on pressing rape charges against Quitoriano.
