ILOILO City – Her cousin allegedly raped her.
A 17-year-old girl in Balasan, Iloilo told the police this on March 6.
The girl – a high school student – said her 27-year-old cousin sexually assaulted her in their house in Barangay Kinalkalan, Balasan earlier that day.
She was feeling under the weather at the time – the reason she had to go home early from school.
While she was resting, her cousin entered the house then threatened and raped her, the victim said.
After the incident, the girl told her parents and they went to the police station to report.
According to the victim, her cousin had raped her in 2015, too. She did not tell anyone about it out of fear, she added.
The suspect remains at large. A rape charge will be filed against him, police said./PN
