ALLEGED RAPIST: HARMONY, NOT RAPE
A 35-year-old man is protesting innocence after being accused of raping a “mad woman” in Kampong Speu province, police in Samrong Torng district said. Authorities say the man raped the victim four times before he was arrested on Wednesday. The suspect admitted to having sex with the victim, but insisted, “it was not a rape. It was harmony”. Police said the victim was susceptible to attack because her mind is “not normal” and she is “easily cheated”.
