Philly man sentenced for posing as maintenance worker, sexually assaulting Cheltenham woman inside her apartment

Gilberto Liborio Saguilan, 30, of Philadelphia was sentenced to four to nine years in prison on charges that he sexually assaulted a Cheltenham woman inside her apartment while posing as a maintenance worker in August 2020.

According to The Reporter, the judge also sentenced Saguilan to three years’ probation and a lifetime requirement to report his address to state police in compliance with Pennsylvania’s Sexual Offender Registration and Notification Act, formally known as Megan’s Law.

An excerpt from their article:

The victim reported she was alone in her apartment at 11:30 p.m. when Saguilan, who she believed was a maintenance worker for the apartment building, knocked on her door requesting to enter so he could check for a water leak, according to the criminal complaint filed by Cheltenham Detective Matthew Gonglik.

The woman reported that no leak was found and that Saguilan began pulling off her clothes and forcing himself on her as she told him, “No” several times and tried to push him away from her but was unsuccessful, detectives alleged.
