Authorities in Cagayan Valley Region are now pursuing a 35-year-old man after he allegedly raped a 14-year-old boy during a drinking session last July 18, 2021.

The victim, during the investigation, claimed that they were having a drinking session at dawn on July 18 in Barangay Villa Sur when he had to go look for a mobile phone signal.

He was unaware that someone followed him while looking for reception. Then suddenly, he felt a sharp object shoved to his body, with Ruiz telling him to lie on his stomach.

Scared, the victim followed the suspect’s order, who then sexually assaulted him.

The boy revealed the incident to his grandmother, who later helped him to report to the police, which resulted in the release of order to arrest the suspect.

Police Regional Office 2, in a report by Cagayan Provincial Information Office, identified the suspect as a certain Emerson Ruiz, from Villa Sur, Maddela, Quirino Isabela.

The suspect, once captured, will be charged with rape in relation to Republic Act 7610 or Special Protection of Children Against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act.
