The most wanted person in the National Capital Region (NCR) has fallen in the hands of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG).
Gualberto Serrano, 47, was arrested by members of the CIDG-Women and Children Complaint Unit (WCCU) in Moriones, Tondo, Manila on Aug. 15.
Serrano was declared wanted by the Manila Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 38 for rape and sexual assault.
The victim said in a statement that the suspect started to molest her in March 2008 when she was only 10 years old.
She was sexually abused by the suspect repeatedly until May 9, 2022, and was impregnated twice.
The victim said she was traumatized, prompting her to seek the CIDG’s help.
“This accomplishment of the WCCU is proof of what the CIDG do best – we investigate, file a complaint in court based on our investigation, arrest and put perpetrators behind bars, and ensure that offenders will be held accountable for their crimes,” CIDG Director Brig. Gen. Ronald Lee said.
