A sexagenarian who claims to be a faith healer allegedly raped a 28-year old woman while performing a “ritual” in Valenzuela City on Friday.

Nestor Astoviza Altesola, 60, was allegedly doing a “healing” session on the victim when he suddenly pulled her inside a room and raped her, a police report read.


After the alleged rape, the victim reported the incident to local authorities in Barangay Bignay who then called the police who made the arrest.

Police said Altesola remained silent during the investigation. He is now detained at the Valenzuela City Police Station as charges are being prepared for filing.  /muf
