17-year-old raped by neighbor in Pangasinan cornfield

A 17-year-old ninth grader was raped by a 19-year-old neighbor over the weekend in a cornfield in San Fabian, Pangasinan.
According to a 24 Oras report by GMA News’ Glam Calicdan-Dizon on Wednesday, the suspect Melton Bambalan allegedly threatened the victim with harm if she would tell her parents about the rape.
The suspect, who has been taken into custody, has denied the allegation.
“’Yung una, bumili po ako sa tindahan. Tapos po bigla ko po siyang nakita, tapos  bigla niya akong hinila, tinatanong po kung saan kuya ko… Sinabi niya sa akin, pag magsusumbong ka sa magulang mo, kawawa ka sakin,” the victim told GMA News.
A medico-legal report showed the ninth grader had a laceration in her genital region.
San Fabian police investigators said Bambalan could have been eyeing the victim before the incident.
“Hindi naman inaamin nung suspect pero sa pag-tingin natin, maaring may pagtingin tong suspect po natin,” said Chief Inspector Arvin Jacob, officer-in-charge of San Fabian police station.
Bambalan, now in San Fabian police custody, has been charged with rape.
“Di bale kung binugbog lang ang anak ko, mapag-uusapan pa namin sa ano…Pero ‘yung ganyan na ginawa…masakit talaga,” the victim’s mother said.
“Gusto ko po siyang mabulok sa kulungan tapos ayaw ko na po siyang palabasin,” the victim said.
