A girl was raped by a man she met on Facebook. The incident happened after the 13-year-old victim agreed to have an eye ball with her chatmate.
First they got acquainted through the social networking site then felt comfortable with one another and eventually became textmates.
A News 5 report identified the teenager as Paula (real name withheld for privacy). She was apparently fawned over by the suspect, who convinced her to a meet up.
The victim was not able to talk and eat when she came home from Taguig, her mother said during an interview. Aling Maring realized that her daughter was sexually violated when she confessed that her private parts were painful.
Paula fought back when the 21-year-old suspect, Vergel Bibo, forced her to have sex with him, but to no avail, her mom claimed.
The alleged perpetrator is nowhere to be found after the incident. A barangay watchman said he has a violent behaviour when drunk.
A hot pursuit is being conducted by authorities to capture Bibo, who is facing charges for child abuse and rape.

Will this serve as an eye opener to parents? Is it time to prohibit minors from using social media?
