Rape suspects sought

POLICE in Kampot province are searching for a 48-year-old man and his three sons after they allegedly raped an 11-year-old girl on six separate occasions between April and June this year. Trapaing Phlaing commune police chief Mom Buth said that the suspects had escaped into a nearby forest after the victim’s family filed a complaint with police. Sim Sorphea, provincial women’s investigator for rights group Adhoc, said that the man had allegedly lured the girl to a forest where he and his three sons – aged 22, 20 and 18 – had raped the girl on separate occasions.
