Underage sex
A CAMBODIAN man was sent to Phnom Penh Municipal Court for questioning after being accused of sexually abusing an underage girl up to six times at a guesthouse in Daun Penh district.

The suspect, a 20-year-old tuk-tuk driver, was arrested in Chey Chumnas commune on Thursday following a complaint lodged by the 16-year-old victim’s parents.

Deputy district police chief Em Saroeun said the suspect was sent to court on Saturday following his arrest, where he confessed to having sex with the girl at a guesthouse.

“After eating and drinking at a local restaurant … the suspect lured a girl to a guesthouse, where he had sex with her up to six times that night,” Em Samroeun said.
