Three alleged rapists arrested in K Chhnang

Three farm workers were sent to court in Kampong Chhnang on Sunday in connection with the gang rape of a 22-year-old woman on Friday in Teuk Phos district, said Duch Chamroeun, chief of the province’s penal police department.

According to the police, the men, Sovar, known as Ngoy, 22; Om Chhin, 33; and Ra Vet, 22, were drinking together when their neighbour walked by. They invited the woman, who police said has a mental disability, to drink with them and then later led her to a plot of land where each man raped her.

“The local villagers heard the victim cry out for help,” said Norng Phoeun, deputy police chief of Teuk Phos district. “They took photos of the suspects and sent them to police so the suspects could not deny the crime.” Kampong Chhnang court officials could not be reached for comment yesterday.
