MANILA - The Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) expressed disappointment over the slow pace of the case of an 11-month-old girl who was raped and killed last August 1.

VACC member Boy Evangelista pointed out that police have yet to make an arrest in the case even if the suspect has already been identified.

Residents in San Juan also hit police authorities for failing to make an arrest despite the evidence.

The body of the 11-month-old girl was found under a parked passenger jeepney along Don Ejercito Street in Barangay Tibagan last August 1.

Footage from a closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera nearby showed a man, later identified by witnesses as Arnel Tumbali, carrying the baby.

The victim's body showed signs she was raped before she was killed, police said.

The city government of San Juan has offered a P100,000 reward for the arrest of Tumbali, who was described as between 20 and 24 years old, 5'4" to 5'6" tall, of medium build and dark-skinned.

Evangelista warned that if not arrested immediately, the suspect might still commit the same crime.
