SAN PEDRO, Laguna, Philippines—A professor at the De La Salle University, Dasmariñas has been arrested in an entrapment operation for allegedly harassing his 17-year-old student, police disclosed Monday morning.
Arnel Sanchez, 30, was arrested in an entrapment operation Thursday night in Cavite, said Inspector Agripina Batoctoy, chief of the Women and Children Protection Desk Cavite.
Batoctoy said in a phone interview on Monday that Sanchez, a teacher of criminal law,
had texted the student about a "special project" for her to pass his class.
The student claimed that the suspect had required her to have sex with him at the Four C Hotel in Dasmariñas, Cavite. The girl sought the help of the police, who set up the entrapment.
When they met at the hotel, Sanchez allegedly opted to have sex with the student inside his van, saying he wanted to save on hotel bills.
While they were in the van, the student made a missed call to the police as a cue for the arrest to be made.
Sanchez, a resident of the village of Burol, remains in the custody of the Dasmariñas police.
I do teach but I never did believe on special projects. Besides, a teacher who does things like that is really a low life. He either needs a girlfriend or just wanted to have an easy lay. I am just shocked the perp (perpetrator) is the same age as me.
