A 55-year-old man who was accused of raping his relative in Antique province was arrested afternoon of Nov 25, 2022 in Quezon City, Metro Manila.

Primitivo Marfil, who used to reside in Barangay Poblacion, San Remigio, Antique, was collared at Barangay Bagong Silang, Quezon City years after he left his home province.

Members of the San Remigio Municipal Police Station’s tracker team served the arrest warrant against the suspect for two counts of rape in Criminal Case Nos. 2018-11-9405 and 2018-11-9406.

No bail was recommended for his temporary freedom.

Master Sergeant Rocky Luzarita, the investigator-on-case, said the suspect is San Remigio’s most wanted person.

Marfil is also listed as the ninth most wanted person in the province of Antique.

The suspect used to work as a driver but left even before the arrest warrant against him was issued in 2018.

He then worked as a construction worker in Metro Manila.

Marfil is presently in the custody of the arresting team and will be returned to San Remigio MPS.
