MANILA – A man from Valenzuela City was arrested Monday for raping his three daughters.
The suspect's eldest daughter, aged 23, said her father started raping her when they were still living in Masbate in 2005, a year after her mother succumbed to cancer.
She said when they transferred to Valenzuela in 2012, the suspect also started molesting her two siblings, aged now 14 and 15.
She said her father rapes them especially when he is drunk.
The suspect did not deny the allegations.
"Habang buhay ko po pagsisihan sa kulungan yung ginawa ko. Huwag niyo po akong tularan. Sa mga anak ko, sana mapatawad niyo pa ako,'' he said.
Valenzuela police chief Senior Superintendent Rhoderick Armamento said one of the victims attempted to commit suicide because of what happened to her.
The victims also narrated that their father once forced them to eat dog feces after they failed to clean up the dog's mess.
The victims are now under the care of the Department of Social Welfare and Development. – report from Jerome Lantin, ABS-CBN News
