One of four relatives accused of raping a young family member several times in Nueva Vizcaya was arrested during an operation in Diadi town, police reported.

Suspect Barabas Guihom, 30, was arrested in Brgy. Ampakleng on Wednesday, after eight years of hiding, according to a report from the Cagayan Valley regional police.

Guihom is among four suspects charged for raping a girl in 2013.

He is a cousin of the girl, who was then only 13 years old, while the other suspects are the girl’s father and two brothers, the report said.

The girl was sexually assaulted seven times on different occasions that year, regional police spokesperson Lt. Col. Andree Abella said.

The suspects went into hiding, until police in Diadi finally received information on Guihom’s whereabouts.

Guihom was arrested on a warrant issued by the court in Bayombong for rape in relation to the law against child abuse.

His arrest is expected to help local law enforcers locate the three other suspects, the regional police said.
