According to reports, 4 minors from Masbate City were raped, leaving 2 of them potentially pregnant. The worst part? It was their own father who abused them.
2 of them were believed to be pregnant
The suspect, Allan Amaro, 45, was arrested last Friday in his home in Barangay Batuhan, after his 5-year-old daughter told an aide from the local school that she had escaped from her father, who attempted to rape her.
Upon further investigation, they found that the suspect also raped his three other daughters, who were aged 15, 13, and 10 while their mother was working in another town. Based on a pregnancy test, the suspect’s 10 and 13 year old daughters are believed to be pregnant as a result of the abuse that they suffered from their own father.
He also raped his daughters from his first wife
According to Police Officer 3 Mary Ann Berano, case investigator of Women and Children Protection Desk of Masbate police, “The mother of the victims seldom visits their children because they are in an on-and-off relationship. The grandmother disclosed that her daughter is being abused by the suspect.”
Additional investigations found that their own uncle, who was the husband of their father’s sister, also raped 2 of the children, the 13-year-old and the 10-year-old. Investigators add that before the incidents were found out, their uncle left his house in the same town, and went to Manila. He allegedly gave the victims money so that they would not tell the parents of what happened.
Investigators also found that in addition to raping his 4 daughters, the suspect, Amaro, also raped 2 of his children from his first wife.
