SAN FRANCISCO, Agusan del Sur—The police chief of Barobo town in Surigao del Sur was relieved from his post after he was accused of sexually assaulting his subordinate, a policewoman.

The incident supposedly took place on the night of July 11 when Chief Insp. Dominador Plaza drove the victim home in his Ford Everest Titanium car where he allegedly tried to rape her.

A statement of the victim documented at the Women and Children Protection Desk (WCPD) at the police provincial office in Tandag City disclosed that Plaza reclined the car seat and forcibly lay on top of her.

Plaza, however, failed in his plan as the policewoman resisted. Instead, he masturbated in front of the policewoman.
