Man gets arrested for raping his 88-year-old mother [+video]

For raping his own mother, a 54-year-old man was arrested by operatives of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in Tagaytay, Cavite.

The NBI discovered the 4-year-long abuse after the suspect was caught in the act by a grandchild of the victim while she was sitting on her wheelchair before dawn Thursday, January 14.

NBI Cavite chief Atty. Olivo Ramos told GMA News that the abuse usually happens on hours that the housemaids are sleeping.

Although unable to speak, it was noticed that the old woman was traumatized as tears were falling from her eyes, he said.

The suspect, who admitted of using illegal drugs (shabu) for over a decade now, did not deny the allegations.

After being handcuffed and brought to a detention facility, he asked for forgiveness from his mother.
