GENERAL SANTOS CITY – A police station commander shot dead a rape suspect, who attempted to grab the handgun of a policeman while being investigated inside a police station here on Thursday.

P/Capt. Brent Salazar, commander of Police Station 4 said he shot the suspect, Ronald Badal, 30, who tried to wrestle the service firearm of his police escort while being investigated inside the police station in Barangay San Isidro, this city.

“I decided to shoot the suspect after he grabbed the handgun of his police escort,”Salazar said.

Police said the suspect was earlier arrested after he sexually molested a five-year-old girl in Barangay Conel.

The victim’s mother had sought police assistance after the suspect molested her daughter by inserting his finger into the internal organ of the victim.

Police had also arrested the victim’s father and his sister for trying to cover up the case.

Police said the victim had reported to her father and her aunt the sexual assault made by the suspect, but the latter warned the victim not to report the incident to the police.

Police had filed charges for child abuse against the victim’s father and aunt.
