MANILA, Philippines — A 67-year-old man, who allegedly sexually molested a 9-year-old girl inside his house in Valenzuela City on Monday, was arrested early Tuesday.

Police said the victim removed the suspect’s hands and reported the incident to her mother, who then asked help from officials of Barangay (village) Canumay West.
Village officials then arrested the suspect and brought him to Valenzuela Police Community Precinct 1 where he is now facing an acts of lasciviousness complaint. (Editor: Mike U. Frialde)
