Teens accused of rape

Two teenagers accused of raping a 27-year-old woman in Battambang province’s Phnom Rey village last Wednesday were sent to provincial court yesterday.

According to the woman’s complaint, the two youths, 19 and 14, raped her after she became intoxicated, deputy provincial police chief Chet Vanny said.

“We have prepared the lawsuit for the judges to investigate and charge them,” he said.

The woman told police that the 19-year-old was her boyfriend but that she had not agreed to have sex with him, much less his 14-year-old friend, Vanny said.

The suspects, however, denied that they had raped the woman, saying that they had gone over to her house that evening to drink with her and her brother but that when they had finished drinking, they had simply fallen asleep, Vanny said.

He added that the teenagers said that when they woke up the next morning, they were surprised to learn that the woman had filed a rape complaint against them.
