A six-year-old boy, who played a minor role for a child-oriented television show, was allegedly molested by a male talent agent inside the Manila Boys town complex in Marikina City Tuesday.
Security guards arrested the suspect, Randolf Casimiro, 29, of Caloocan City, who was caught with the boy inside the portable toilet.
According to the victim’s mother, Lani (not her real name), they were waiting for their talent fee at around 4 p.m. after the shooting of the fantasy-drama anthology, aired every weekend.
PO3 Vanesa de Guzman said, according to Lani, Casimiro called the boy and let him sit on his lap.
Lani said she left for a while and found her son missing.
While looking for her son, Lani heard a loud scream and rushed to the portalet where she found the suspect and the victim.
With the help of the orphanage guards, Casimiro was brought to the Marikina police station. Charges of sexual abuse are being prepared against the suspect.
The victim later confided to his mother that the suspect kissed him on the lips and played his private part.
