Police say massage biz offered sex with children

A husband and wife were arrested on Monday with police alleging their Phnom Penh massage parlour was a brothel offering sex with underage girls.

Toch Bros, 52, and Young Thoun, 36, are being questioned by anti-human trafficking police, following a raid at their business in the capital’s Chamkarmon district on Monday night.

According to the police report, six girls, mostly underage, were rescued from the premises.

Deputy prosecutor of Phnom Penh Municipal Court Kong Sam Saret said the business was a front for exploitation.

“In fact, they hid [the girls] for sexual harassment,” he claimed.

Neighbour Chan Van said she was surprised upon learning of the couple’s alleged seedy dealings.

“The house has been a massage business for a long time but no one knew that they offered sexual services there,” Van said.

“When police arrived and raided the house it was a surprise.”

The pair will be sent to court once police have completed their questioning.
