A 17-year-old freshman on Wednesday night around 10 – 11 P.M., was raped on the IPB Road, University of the Philippines in Los Baños (UPLB) like Given Grace was raped and killed heartlessly.
Remember Given Grace Cebanico? She was a junior computer science student at the University of the Philippines in Los Baños (UPLB) where she was raped and killed bearing stab wounds, hands cuffed and her mouth gagged with a handkerchief near in the grounds of the said university.



Deja vu? A 17-year-old freshman on Wednesday night around 10 – 11 P.M., was raped on the same spot like Given Grace was raped and killed heartlessly.

According to the Vice-chancellor of UPLB Dr. Enrique Tolentino, The victim who was from a school event took the road home with a tricycle in Barangay Maahas around 9:30P.M.

While travelling the teenager was able to send a text message to her mother that she was already in Sitio. Buot area,when suddenly the tricycle driver stopped the vehicle and told the victim that they ran out of gas and asked her to evacuate the tricycle.

Before the incident happened, the suspect threatened to kill the victim with a weapon with him and brought her to a dark portion of the IPB road in Barangay Putho-Tuntungin then cuddled the victim in struggle.

After the horrible incident happened, the driver chose to abandon the victim alone in the darks, later a security guard of the university saw the victim walking in the area. The victim managed to get home and told her family about the sufferings she had. Yet the victim’s family has requested privacy, according to reports.

Tolentino expressed his concern because another rape incident happened in almost the same area where Given Grace Cebanico was raped and tormented to death.

The UPLB administration is coordinating with police to catch the suspect of the latest rape case, said by Dr. Enrique Tolentino.

The victim is still suffering from trauma, yet the university is helping the 17-year-old victim for  her medical and academic needs.
