MANILA -- A 79-year-old man from Cabarroguis, Quirino has been arrested for raping his 8-year old grandchild.
The victim's father, identified only as "Juan," said the incident happened after he asked his daughter, "Princess," to bring coffee and sugar to his father-in-law's house.
The man followed his daughter and suddenly saw his father-in-law holding the girl's arm, with the child lying on a table.
Juan said he asked his daughter about the incident. The girl said she was raped by her grandfather.
The girl was checked by a doctor, who said that she was indeed raped.
Police have arrested the suspect.
However, because of his age, he suffered from hypertension and had to be brought to a hospital.
The suspect admitted raping his granddaughter, saying that he was under the influence of alcohol.
He will face multiple incestous rape charges. -- report from Janford Bonifacio, ABS-CBN News Cagayan Valley
