One charged, others wanted in gang-rape

A 21-year-old man was charged yesterday in Phnom Penh Municipal Court for the gang rape of a 20-year-old woman in the capital’s Russey Keo district on Saturday.

Lim Ly was ordered into pre-trial detention in Prey Sar prison after being charged with rape, court prosecutor Chea Meth said.

Police say the woman, from Kampong Cham province, was gang-raped by five men in bushes near Koh Dach Port, in Koh Dach commune, in an attack that lasted hours. The attackers allegedly tied her hands, covered her mouth and raped her until she was unconscious.

She was taken to hospital after the attack and later released. Police are searching for four other men they believe were involved in the rape.
