More than a quarter of the 63 rape cases reported in Baguio from January to August this year were committed inside homes and boarding or transient houses, where victims are supposed to be safe.

In the rape assessment report done by the Baguio City Police Office on rape cases since the start of the year, 14 cases were committed in private homes while 11 were reported in boarding or transient houses.

Three other cases were committed in vacant lots while two in apartment sites. Each case of rape were committed at a construction site, highway, government office, bar, behind a building and in a hotel.

The BCPO report added that most victims are strangers while some suspects are neighbors or relatives of the victims.

The report also stated that 14 of the rape victims were under the influence of liquor when the crime was committed while 14 suspects arrested were intoxicated when the crime was committed.

Most of the rape cases were reported by the victims to have been committed between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. and between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m.

Most victims of rape in Baguio are aged 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, and 26 but the victim can be as young as three and old as 67.

On the other hand, most of the suspects are aged 18, 24, 44, and 70 years old and above.
