BOY LANDS IN HOT WATER FOLLOWING STEAMY TRYST
Police in Battambang town arrested a 16-year-old boy on Tuesday after a woman accused him of kidnapping her 17-year-old daughter. It is alleged that the boy phoned the 17-year-old to invite her out for a leisurely walk on the town in late June. That’s when he asked her to live with him in an out-of-wedlock arrangement. She apparently agreed, and the couple rented a room and slept together that night. Upon his subsequent arrest, police sent the boy to the provincial police station for questioning.
