Father arrested for alleged rape of daughter, 9

A father of three from Russey Keo was arrested by Phnom Penh Police on Friday after his wife alleged the 34-year-old repeatedly raped their 9-year-old daughter, according to deputy chief of Phnom Penh criminal police Nuon Sanith.

The victim had first spoken of the abuse the previous day with her grandmother, who then went to the police station, Sanith said.

“[The victim] did not remember how many times. What she could remember was March 4 and March 13, which was the last time it happened. He raped her when her mother was not at home,” said Sanith, adding the suspect threatened to kill the victim and her mother if she ever spoke out.

The victim was taken to Phnom Penh Referral Hospital for testing, where the doctor said she required additional treatment.

Sanith said the suspect, who is being held at Phnom Penh Municipal Court, confessed to the abuse. His arrest took place at the fruit stall where his wife normally works.

She had asked him to watch the stall while she took their daughter to school, and then instead went to the police station.
