CEBU CITY - A 65-year-old man was sent to jail for raping the granddaughter of his cousin.

The suspect, "Jayme," admitted in an interview with ABS-CBN News that he committed the crime.

He said he invited the six-year-old victim to his house Saturday afternoon to give her some leftovers.

There was no one else inside the house so he asked the child to go to his room.

Jayme said he was drunk and was not in his right state of mind when the incident happened.

Authorities brought the victim to a hospital for medical examination. She is also undergoing stress debriefing with social workers.
