Talisay student athlete accuses P.E. teacher of molesting him
A grade six student of Talisay City Central School accused a teacher of molesting him twice in Asturias town last Thursday evening.
The student is a baseball player of the Talisay City contingent attending the ongoing Central Visayas Regional Athletic Association (Cviraa).
The incident allegedly happened outside the Asturias National High School which housed delegates of the Cviraa being staged in Balamban town since last week.
PO3 Menchu Serognas of the Women and Children’s Desk of the Asturias police said the boy was accompanied by his baseball coach to the police precinct to file the charge.
CDN is witholding the name of the Physical Education teacher until his side is heard on the case.
The boy said the teacher, who served as a sepak takraw coach, asked to talk to him after dinner at 7 p.m.
The teacher brought him to a dark area where he touched the boy’s privates.
The boy managed to run away but was later approached by the teacher again and brought to a multicab where he allegedly ordered the student to perform oral sex on him.
The boy said he was given P100 so he won’t tell anyone what happened to him,” said PO3 Diane Molejon.
But the boy told his friends and his coach.
Senior Insp. Glenn Devocion, Asturias police precinct chief, said they went to Talisay City to ask the victim, his parents, teachers and friends to execute affidavits on the case.
Charges of violating Republic Act (RA) 7610 or the Act Providing Stronger Deterrence and Special Protection Against Child Abuse will be filed in court against the teacher who remains at large.
Senior Insp. Margienett Yosores, head of the Cebu Provincial Police’s Women and Children’s Protection Desk said they recorded 32 cases of child sex abuse cases from July to September. She said they recorded 244 cases of attempted rape, incest, trafficking and other forms of child abuse.
“Teachers should act as second parents to their students and should not allow these things to happen,” Talisay City Councilor Richard Aznar said.
Aznar, chairman of the Talisay City Council education committee, said he has yet to learn of the full details of the case from Talisay City Schools Division Supt. Leah Noveras.
