Police arrested last week a 35-year-old man who allegedly sexually abused a girl twice 10 years ago in Kagman.
Peter Cabrera Camacho was arrested Thursday on Navy Hill and taken to Superior Court the following day on charges of sexual assault in the first degree, sexual abuse of a minor in the first degree, sexual abuse of a minor in the second degree, two counts of assault and battery, and two counts of disturbing the peace. His bail was set at $20,000 cash.
Police detective Isapen Bokuku stated in her report that Sgt. Elden Dela Cruz first met the mother of the alleged victim on Feb. 26, 2013, at the Office of the Attorney General’s Criminal Division in Susupe. The mother told the officer that Camacho sexually abused her daughter in 2003.
Bokuku said that during her interview on July 12, 2013, the alleged victim disclosed that she was at her aunt’s house in Kagman for Thanksgiving when Camacho lured her to his house, about four houses away.
At his house, Camacho allegedly molested the girl in the bedroom. The girl said she cried and begged Camacho to stop. He only stopped when she started screaming and kicking him. Camacho allegedly told the alleged victim not to tell anyone about what happened.
The second incident allegedly occurred during a family gathering at the victim’s house in December 2003.
The alleged victim said she was about to sleep in her father’s bedroom when Camacho, who was drunk, raped her. She said she was crying and yelling for her father, but no one heard because the music was loud and all family members were drunk.
While Camacho was allegedly raping her, someone knocked on the door. Camacho put on his clothes and told her to do the same. Camacho opened the door and the girl’s father looked at them, went to the bed and slept. The girl said her father saw her crying, but didn’t ask her what happened.
She said she didn’t tell anyone because Camacho threatened to hurt her if she talks.
When her sister arrived from the U.S. mainland in May 2004, she told her about the incidents. The sister told their mother about it the next day.
The report did not mention why police started the investigation only in February this year.
