Korean-Australian man faces child sex charges

A 38-year-old Korean-Aust-ralian was arrested on Wednesday night for allegedly sexually assaulting two girls aged six and 10 and producing child porn-ography, Banteay Meanchey provincial police said yesterday.

Provincial anti-human traff-icking and juvenile protect-ion police chief Sith Los said Charles Sohn had been arrested at his rented house in Poipet town’s Kbal Koh village.

He said the victims’ mothers had filed complaints with the police, who later confiscated child pornography from the suspect’s house.

Khoem Vando, information officer at the NGO Action Pour Les Enfants, said it had monitored Sohn since December.

According to the girls, he had lured them into his house, performed sexual acts on them and taken photographs of them naked.

An APLE press release says  a neighbour heard a girl crying in the suspect’s house, opened the door and saw him taking off his pants, while the six year-old girl was naked on the bed.

APLE rescued her as the man was arrested, it says.
