Police hold one over sex assault, kidnap of teen

POLICE in Battambang province sent a 22-year-old man to court yesterday after arresting him for the kidnapping and rape of a 15-year-old girl on Saturday, said provincial Deputy Police Chief Chea Thoun. “We are preparing the documents for sending the suspect to the court this evening,” he said. Thuch Ra, police chief of Battambang town, said provincial police had cooperated with town police to arrest the suspect at a money changer’s shop in Svay Por commune, Battambang district, after a tip-off from the girl’s parents. They said the accused had demanded US$500 for the release of their daughter.
