Police nabbed a 29-year-old taxi driver Marjomar Saulog for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl.
According to “Jane”, she was walking in Baclaran at night when Saulog forced her to ride his taxi. Inside, she said he sprayed a chemical inside the vehicle which made her fall asleep.
When she woke up, she discovered Saulog raping her in a remote area in Brgy. Sta. Cruz, Antipolo City.“Ang sabi niya po sa ‘kin walang makakarinig sa ‘yo dito kahit sumigaw ka kasi nasa bundok tayo,” Jane recounted the suspect telling her.
Jane also said Saulog threatened to kill her if she resisted.
“Sabi niya po sa akin papatayin niya po ako pag ‘di ako pumayag sa gusto niya sabay niya po ako sinuntok sa tiyan,” she said.
Police who were roving the area were able to apprehend Saulog after finding him on top of the victim.
For his part, the suspect denied raping the victim and said he was just tortured by the police into confessing.
“Pinilit lang po akong paaminin ng pulis,” he told ABS-CBN. “Pinalo po ako ng bakal.”
However, Antipolo police chief Supt. Simnar Gran said they only used reasonable force on the suspect after he resisted arrest.
