SAN NICOLAS, Ilocos Norte, Dec. 12–Cops under police chief S/I Rodelio Santos quickly conducted a followup operation last night shortly after a nursing aide of a hospital went to the municipal police station here and complained that she was allegedly raped by a man who offered his tricycle to bring her home to Laoag City.
Investigators said home-bound Beverly (not her real name) was long waiting for a tricycle ride after her hospital night duty when the suspect approached her and offered his tricycle parked in his nearby house.
She agreed and followed him to his house where the alleged sexual abuse took place. Police had readied to file rape and theft charges against the suspect. The victim claimed that she was also robbed.(tsg/al-jg)
