Man held in rape of teen girl in Sihanoukville

A 30-year-old man was detained for questioning yesterday evening in Sihanoukville for the alleged rape of a 15-year-old girl, police have confirmed.

Sihanoukville police chief Phol Phorsda said that authorities expect to receive the results of a medical test by today.

Koh Rong commune police official Heng Kim Arn said that suspect Yuy Soch, a private security guard, had been arrested based on the complaint of the alleged victim’s mother, but had denied the claims under questioning.

Kim Arn said the victim claimed her attacker threatened to kill her if she told anyone “but when we went to ask the victim, she confirmed that she was raped”.

The incident allegedly took place at about 9:30pm on Sunday at the girl’s house.

Meanwhile, police in Phnom Penh say they are seeking an arrest warrant for a suspect wanted in connection to the alleged rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl in the capital’s Meanchey district last week.

Investigator Meng Vimean Dara said yesterday that the warrant would allow authorities in other jurisdictions to arrest the suspect, who is believed to have fled.
