MANILA, Philippines — A teenager was arrested Thursday after allegedly raping his elder sister inside their home in Las Piñas City, police said Friday.
Senior Superintendent Romulo Sapitula, Las Piñas chief of police, said the suspect, 18, was arrested inside the family’s home along BF Resort Village for allegedly raping his 21-year-old sister twice inside her room.
The victim was quoted as saying that she was first raped by her brother last September 11, but decided not to say anything about the incident for fear of her life.
The suspect, the police chief said, was only arrested after the mother allegedly caught him in the act of raping her daughter, prompting her to call the police.
Sapitula said the suspect even tried to resist arrest, but was eventually handcuffed and taken to prison, adding that he was also made to undergo a drug examination as requested by his mother.
The suspect is scheduled for inquest proceedings for two counts of incestuous rape and direct assault, he said.
