Rape in Kampong Chnnang: One nabbed, nine flee in rape case

Rape in Kampong Chnnang
One man was arrested but a manhunt is on for nine other suspects in the brutal gang-rape of a 13-year-old girl last month, deputy Kampong Chhnang Provincial Police chief Prak Vuthy said yesterday.

Vuthy said that an arrest was made on Sunday of a young man from Boribor district’s Chhnok Trou commune who lived in the same village as the victim. Though Vuthy was unable to provide details about the suspects, he said all 10 were aged 18 to 21.

The victim is believed to have been gang-raped by the group on three separate occasions over three days, said Tith  Saruon, deputy district police chief.

“For fear of her life, she did not initially tell her father what happened,” he said.

Days after the rapes, unable to bear it any longer, said Saruon, she told her father who then reported it to the police.

“Our police are still seeking for their arrest in order to bring them to be punished,” said Vuthy.

After being sent to the hospital, the girl was temporarily placed in a shelter run by anti-trafficking NGO SISHA.
