Manila, Philippines – A 16-year-old high school student was allegedly gang-raped by six men, including four minors, in Santo Domingo, Bataan, police reported. Citing reports submitted by Chief Inspector Elmer C. Santiago, Santo Domingo chief of police, the suspects were arrested after the victim’s mother sought police assistance.
Police added that witnesses were able to positively identify the suspects as the ones who raped the victim who, as of presstime, was still confined in a Bataan hospital. Police said the victim was invited by the suspects to go to a house in Barangay Santo Domingo where they had a drinking spree. The report added that the victim sought permission to take a rest inside a room when she got drunk, but as soon as she went inside the room, the suspects followed her and took turns in raping her for more than one hour.
