Man charged with rape of girl, 14, on boat

A Vietnamese man was remanded in custody yesterday after being charged with two counts of raping a 14-year-old girl on a boat in Pursat province on Sunday.

Police arrested Ngyen Yaing You, 22, of Kandieng district’s Raing Tel commune, about 7:30pm on Sunday while he was aboard a motor boat on  a small river in Krakor district after complaints from the girl’s family.

Krakor district deputy police chief Morl Sot said the suspect had convinced the girl to board the boat under the pretence he would take her to meet her sweetheart, but halfway to the supposed destination he had raped her twice, Morl Sot said.

The suspect had threatened to kill the victim if she shouted or resisted, he said.

Ngyen Yaing You awaits trial.
