Man held for violating daughter and niece

Kandal Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Department officers sent a man to the provincial court on Tuesday after arresting him the day before for allegedly molesting his daughter and niece in Sa’ang district.

Department chief Ros Savin said the 30-year-old construction worker was questioned before being sent to court.

“My department sent the suspect to court and the provincial prosecutor is working on the case,” he said.

Sa’ang district police chief Ros Chantha told The Post on Tuesday that the suspect’s nine-year-old daughter and 11-year-old niece are students and live in Sa’ang district.

A police officer who asked to remain anonymous said they were tipped off by the victims’ grandmother and aunt.

Quoting the niece, the police officer said she made daily visits to her uncle’s house. When they were alone one day, the suspect forced her to touch him inappropriately and perform oral sex before groping her.

He regularly manipulated her by giving her cakes or money and only committed the crimes when they were alone.

The suspect’s daughter told police that her father forced her to touch him inappropriately and he would do the same to her. She said she didn’t understand what was happening and followed him, added the police.

Other family members of the victims noticed a change in their moods and asked them what had happened. When the kids revealed the truth, the victims’ aunt and grandmother alerted police on Monday.

Police said the suspect denied the allegation. But based on the testimonies of the victims and their family members, police immediately detained him.
