MANILA - A rookie policeman in Sampaloc, Manila is facing investigation for allegedly raping the 15-year-old daughter of a drug suspect.
The teen's mother said Sunday she saw the police officer instructing her daughter to buy liquor before bringing the teenager to a motel in the Sta. Mesa district last October 26.
The girl, in a statement, said she was forced to give herself to the policeman to clear her father from drug allegations.
Metro Manila police chief Director Guillermo Eleazar confronted the policeman with curses, saying the girl tested positive for genital lacerations.
"Yung kalokohan na ginagawa mo kaya tayo nasisira dahil sa iyo!” Eleazar said, jabbing his finger inches away from the suspect's face.

The newbie policeman denied the accusation, claiming the girl's parents want to discredit him.
The parents said their daughter could not interact with anyone out of fear for her life after the alleged sexual abuse.
The teenager has been placed in the custody of the Department of Social Welfare and Development.
The policeman accused of raping her, meanwhile, is under the custody of the Manila police station 4. He will face criminal and administrative complaints, said Eleazar.
