Widow 'lured' teenager

A widowwho allegedly lured a 13-year-old girl to a house to be raped over a three-day period has been arrested by police in Kampong Speu’s Oudong district, officials said yesterday.

Provincial police chief Keo Pisey said yesterday: “I am preparing the documents and I will send the woman to court this evening.”

The widow’s boyfriend who allegedly raped the teenage girl escaped, said a district police officer who declined to be named.

“The girl was cheated by the woman and her boyfriend. The woman gave the money to the girl to ask her to sleep at the suspect’s house for rape,” he alleged. He added that the woman had told police that she was afraid her boyfriend would stop loving her.

Police claimed that the man raped the girl on three occasions between June 19 and 21, before the girl’s mother filed a complaint to police.
