DAVAO DEL NORTE – A suspected drug addict raped a 71-year-old woman in Barangay Sampao, Kapalong in Davao del Norte last Saturday. The suspect, Filmer Alvarez, 29, was a neighbor of the victim. Investigation conducted by police revealed that the suspect went inside the victim's room at dawn and forcibly molested the old woman who was too weak to defend herself
Based on the medical report, aside from rape, the victim also sustained bruises and wounds on her neck. The victim told the police that she begged to be spared for she is already old. "Ingon ko dong,tama na, ingon siya, padayon ni, puslan man nga nahitabo na. Nahilabtan ko nya ka duha," she said.
(I told him to stop but he continued instead; he raped me twice.) The victim's son arrived and mauled the suspect. Alvarez denied the allegations and told the police he does not remember committing the crime because he was drunk. But reports received by police revealed that the suspect was under the influence of marijuana.
Police also recovered the suspect’s underwear and knife inside the house of the victim. According to Chief Inspector Michael Seguido, chief of Kapalong Police, the neighbors told the authorities that the suspect was sniffing marijuana. "Amoa pang iestablish kung sa kahubog o pag ilegal droga nya nga nabuhat niya to," Seguido said. (We will still establish either he was drunk or high of marijuana) The victim will file charges against the suspect.
