Man charged in rape of underage girl

An 18-year-old man was charged with raping a 3-year-old girl in Takeo’s Bati district on Monday, according to Soun Pun, deputy provincial police chief. He said the suspect,  Loch Rathany, broke down in tears and admitted to committing the rape to police, which occurred while the victim’s grandmother went to a market to buy food on February 22. Ung Tha Nann, Adhoc’s provincial coordinator, said that his organisation will investigate the case independently.
