A comedian and former barangay councilor in Quezon City was arrested on Friday for child abuse after allegedly “kissing” his 10-year-old goddaughter.
Quezon City Police District director PCSupt Guillermo Eleazar identified the arrested suspect as Philip Supnet, known as “Kuhol,” 58, a resident of Barangay North Fairview, Quezon City.
Initial investigation showed that Supnet’s Grade 5 goddaughter was buying at his store in front of his house along Axtell Street in Barangay North Fairview when he invited her inside.
Supnet allegedly kissed the minor on her lips and told her to keep quiet and come back again the next day.
Scared of what her godfather did, the child immediately went home and told what happened to her father who reported the incident to the barangay.
Barangay officers collared Supnet who turned him over to QCPD-Fairview Police Station.
The suspect did not deny the allegations and apologized to the victim’s family.
A case of child abuse will be filed against him.
Supnet was a known comedian in the Philippine television and appeared in various movies and series.
