Rape suspect evades Kampong Thom police

KAMPONG Thom provincial police are on the hunt for a 23-year-old rape suspect who fled from custody on Saturday, local officials said. Keo Sophal, chief of the provincial anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection bureau, said yesterday that Yan Tuok was arrested on Friday on suspicion of raping a 15-year-old girl in Santuk district. He said, however, that after confessing to the crime, Yan Tuok escaped from the district police station and was still at large. He was due to be sent to the provincial court for questioning yesterday. “We are terribly regretful for letting the identified suspect go free,” he said. “We are now hunting for the suspect so he can be prosecuted under the law.”
