Said conference was called by PNP Provincial Director PSSupt Ronaldo R. Cabral, who also invited the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to attend.
Cabral said they are determined to capture the suspect and bring him before the bar of justice.
The rape incident occurred on September 15 at around 8 p.m. at Barangay Tiris, this town.
This was confirmed by PCI Jimmy Pintor of Gubat Municipal Police Station in a media interview.
Pintor narrated that the suspect was in the area since it was the day before the fiesta.
He spotted the victim, who comes from a poor family.
The mother of the victim was next door, because with their family's poverty, they had nothing to offer. Thus, she volunteered to wash dishes for a neighbor.
The suspect allegedly took advantage of the situation, abducted the child and took her to a nearby place.
Incidentally, there was a power outage, so the area was totally dark.
After the incident, the child returned home, profusely bleeding.
She was later brought to a public hospital in Albay, where she continues to be under treatment as of this writing.
The family has since been pleading for assistance with the hospital bill.
In response, financial assistance has been given by Cong. Ding Ramos, Gov. Bobet Lee-Rodrigueza, and Wow Smile Radio Sorsogon.
Meantime, Pintor said the suspect has been identified, but remains at large. He would not, however, reveal the name of the suspect pending further investigation.
Pintor also told the Bicol Standard that since the victim is a minor, they could not disclose her name. However, the police report on the matter is now at the Women's Desk. (With additional report by Edgar Tumangan, Wow Smile Radio Sorsogon)
