Man accused of raping minor
POLICE in Kratie prov- ince’s Snoul district have arrested a man aged 51 for allegedly raping a 14-year- old girl.
Kranhoung Senchey commune police chief Keo Vart said that after receiving a complaint from the girl’s parents, police went to Sum Loem’s house and arrested him.
“The rape happened two days before his arrest on Sunday,” he said. “The man confessed to raping the girl four times.”
The girl told police that on the day of the incident Mr. Loem came to her home to buy wine and drink there. “After drinking one can, he ordered her to bring some more to his home near her house and raped her there,” Mr. Vart said.
“After raping the girl, he threatened to kill her and her family if she told anyone, but the girl told her parents and they filed the complaint with us,” he said.
Mr. Vart said Mr. Loem was from Prey Veng province and came to Battambang province for work.
Chhum Kimsan, the provincial deputy police chief, said yesterday that Mr. Loem had been sent to the provincial office and was being questioned before being sent to court.
