MANILA, Philippines — The deputy police chief of San Miguel, Bulacan was relieved from his post yesterday for allegedly raping a quarantine violator.

Lt. Jimmy Fegcan, 41, was arrested at the police station in Barangay Poblacion at around 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday after a 24-year-old woman accused him of rape.

The victim was apprehended at around 2:48 a.m. on the same day for allegedly violating the curfew and going out without a quarantine pass.

“Our Bulacan IAS is conducting a pre-charge investigation. The complaint and its supporting documents are complete,” Internal Affairs Service inspector general Alfegar Triambulo said in a text message.

An initial investigation report obtained by The STAR showed that Fegcan ordered the victim, who was held at the police station’s holding area, to go to his barracks to rest.

The woman claimed she was awakened when a naked Fegcan touched her private parts. She said the police official then undressed and raped her.

“After the incident, the  suspect instructed the victim to dress up so he can bring her home,” the investigation report read.

The woman returned to the police station at around 5:15 p.m to file a complaint against Fegcan.
