MANILA, Philippines – A man was arrested in Cavite after he was accused of raping his daughter’s best friend.

The alleged rape victim, 12-year-old “Angie” (not her real name), only told her family that she was raped after they found out that she was already 8 months pregnant.

Angie accused the suspect, Nelson Realoza, of raping her when she visited her best friend.

She said Realoza threatened to hurt her if she told her family of the alleged rape.

Realoza denied the allegations against him.

He is facing charges of rape and child abuse.

Angie's pregnancy forced her to temporarily stop schooling. -- Report from Zyann Ambrosio, ABS-CBN News
