A mother has sought help from authorities after her 14-year-old daughter was allegedly raped by their close family friend who happens to be a law enforcer.
She said the suspect identified as PO2 Adani Mar Querido visited their house when the incident happened, GMA News reported.
She then said she left her daughter alone with Querido and requested a neighbor to keep an eye out so she could process the death certificate of her husband who recently passed away.
“Tiwala po kami sa kanya eh. Dahil matagal na namin siyang kakilala, mabait kaya sobrang hindi po ako naghinala,” she said.
She rushed home, however, after their neighbor messaged her that the suspect seemed to be acting suspicious around her daughter.
Upon arriving home, her daughter confessed that she was raped by Querido, who hurriedly left after the neighbor repeatedly called the girl's name.
The victim will undergo a medico legal test while the suspect will go through inquest proceedings.
The suspect is facing charges for violating Republic Act 8353 or The Anti-Rape Law.
