Grandpa Rapes Grandchildren

A senior citizen was arrested recently in Bacong town, Negros Oriental after his arrested warrants were served for allegedly raping his two minor grandchildren sometime in May this year, in Barangay Banilad, Bacong.

The suspect was identified as Willy Sarte, 71, resident of the place. He is now detained at Bacong PNP jail.

Records show that parents of the victims went to the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) under Mr. Jessie Cañete to report the incidents.

The CHR conducted investigation and filed the case last September to the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office.

A resolution was issued by the Provincial Prosecutor last September 27 recommending the filing of the case against the suspect.

Three warrants of arrest were issued by Judge Maria Angelita Alcoran of the Regional Trial Court, Branch 37 in Dumaguete City for the case of one minor alone.

It should be noted that the Bacong Police was the one who filed the first case, and the CHR the second case.

No bail was recommended for the suspect’s temporary liberty.*
