Chinese security chief at Kandal factory investigated for rape

A 37-year-old Chinese security chief at Meng Yan factory, who authorities have identified as Xie Shaoxuan, was arrested on Monday for allegedly raping a 19-year-old woman on Sunday in Kandal’s Sa’ang district, according to police.

A second man, a 37-year-old Cambodian security chief, You Sopheak, was also arrested for his involvement in the alleged rape.

According to Seng Socheat, Sa’ang district police chief, Sopheak called the woman into a room where Shaoxuan was waiting and told the victim that the Chinese national loved her and wanted to have sex with her.

The woman refused, but when Sopheak left the room Shaoxuan allegedly raped the victim, the police chief said. Both suspects are at the Kandal prison while their case is investigated.
