Man held for kidnap, torture during sex

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court investigated a man on Wednesday after he was arrested for allegedly kidnapping his girlfriend and torturing her during sex.

The court official, who asked not to be named, said the suspect has been interrogated by a prosecutor but has yet to meet with the investigating judge.

The Cambodian-American man was arrested and sent to court by the Phnom Penh military police, following a report filed by the victim’s aunt who had been worried about her whereabouts.

The Phnom Penh military police report identified the suspect as Proeung Sam Oeun, 39.

The victim was a 22-year-old university student. The report further showed that the suspect is a personal trainer, with whom the victim has been in a romantic relationship for about a year.

The victim informed the authorities that the suspect regularly filmed their sexual activity and pinched and bit her. A search went underway after her aunt reported the victim to be missing since Sunday.
