A man was put in pre-trial detention on Wednesday after he was arrested for raping his 17-year-old stepdaughter on multiple occasions in Kampong Speu province’s Phnom Sruoch district.
The teenager is now pregnant. Deputy district police chief Ngen Sokunthea said Sok Thy, 40, first raped his unidentified stepdaughter when he moved in to live with his new wife earlier this year.
After forcing her to have an abortion, he continued to rape her until recently, when the girl broke the news and reported to police.
Sokunthea said Thy was arrested on Sunday at his house in Prey Romdoul commune’s Rumduol Thmei village.
