Man flees after rape, murder of nine-year-old

Police in Takeo Province’s Prey Kabbas district have identified a man who fled his village after raping and killing a nine-year-old girl on Monday.

The district police chief Chum Chhoeun said the girl had been collecting rice from a field with her grandmother when Yen Ty, 37, approached her and forcefully pulled her into his home.

He then proceeded to rape and kill the young girl. “I’ve ordered my officers to pursue and arrest him,” Chhoeun said. An anonymous witness who lives in the same village told The Post on Tuesday that he saw the suspect pulling the victim inside his home.

He then alerted other villagers after hearing the young girl’s cries for help, but when they arrived they found the victim’s strangled body at a pond nearby the suspect’s home.
