MANILA, Philippines — Police are filing charges against a 22-year-old waiter accused of raping a 15-year-old Norwegian tourist at the beach resort he works at.

Senior Inspector Ryan Retutar says the suspect struck up a conversation with the girl late last Friday while she was alone by a pool at the resort in northern Ilocos Norte province. He says the waiter started groping the girl and took her to the cafeteria and raped her.

The girl reported the assault to her parents, who contacted police Saturday.

Retutar said Tuesday that the suspect claimed the victim was his girlfriend, which she denied.
