Man arrested for rape

A 46-YEAR-OLD man was arrested on Sunday for allegedly raping his 15-year-old daughter in Kampong Cham province, officials said yesterday. Tbong Khmum district police chief Moeng Raiya said that the man had confessed to the rape. “We are sending the offender to the provincial police station,” he said, adding that the girl had allegedly been raped multiple times since last November. The girl’s mother said yesterday that her daughter had been afraid to speak about the alleged assaults. “My daughter told me a long time ago that her father raped her, but she didn’t dare to tell others because her father threatened to take her life,” she said.
