Teen arrested for rape of two nieces in Battambang

A teenager was sent to court on Tuesday for raping his two underage nieces in Battambang provincial city’s Svay Por commune.

Born Vanra, chief of the anti-human trafficking and juvenile protection bureau, said Dy Chea, 17, admitted to raping his 11-year-old niece but denied raping the six-year-old one.

“The suspect confessed he raped the 11-year-old several times but denied raping the younger niece, who alleged he raped her twice,” Vanra said.

The unidentified victims, whose father is handicapped and mother a cart puller at the Poipet international checkpoint in neighbouring Banteay Meanchey province, live with their grandmother and the suspect in Kampong Krabey village.
