/ 06:10 AM October 20, 2017

OLONGAPO CITY—Six city policemen were placed under restrictive custody after a female detainee accused them of rape and maltreatment.

The 30-year-old detainee, a drug suspect, filed criminal and administrative charges against PO1 Raymond Diaz, PO3 Diosdado Alterado, PO3 Stevie Rivera, PO2 Nelson Abalos, PO1 Ed Mesias and PO1 Gaylord Calara at the Olongapo City prosecutor’s office here, said PO1 Juan Carlos Ventura, public information officer of the city police.

The sexual assault allegedly took place at 1 a.m. on June 29 while the victim was detained at the custodial facility of Police Station 5 in Barangay Sta. Rita, Ventura told the Inquirer.

It took about four months before the complainant narrated her ordeal as she reportedly waited for a chance to be transferred to the city jail.
