Youth’s vigilance leads to arrest of suspected child molester
by Hanna C. Lacsamana

Personnel of the Baguio City Police Office arrested a chess coach who was documented doing acts of abuse on his 10-year old student last week.

The suspect, identified as Ramsey L. Tiwaken, 33, a resident of Ambassador, Tublay, Benguet, was arrested after witnesses, one of them an 11-year old female, reported to the BCPO Tourist Police Unit seeing Tiwaken abusing his student in two occasions.

The witnesses said they were on board a passenger jeep from La Trinidad, Benguet towards Baguio City when they noticed Tiwaken, who was sitting in front of them, touching the private parts of the minor sitting close beside him.

One of the witnesses, an 11-year old, took a video of the incident using her mobile phone. Later, they again saw the same man and his companion at Burnham Park, where the suspect continued his lewd actions on the minor, his arms wrapped around her and touching her private parts. The witness took photos, which she and her friends brought to the attention of the police that promptly responded and made the arrest.

The witness uploaded the video and photos in the social media page of a local complaints forum and immediately became viral.

Tiwaken claimed that he and the child has an  “understanding” as that of a couple, which the girl and her parents denied.

He is detained at the Baguio City Jail and is facing charges for violation of the Child Abuse Law.

Police Regional Office Cordillera Director B/Gen. Israel Ephraim Dickson lauded the BCPO under its director, Col. Allen Rae Co, and thanked the citizens for their vigilance that led to the immediate arrest of the suspect.

He appealed to parents to be cautious in employing mentors for their children, for the public to remain vigilant for similar incidents, and to immediately report any threat to peace and order.
