Police Hunting For Suspected Child Rapist

Police in Kompong Thom pro­vince are searching for a 16-year-old boy suspected of raping a 3-year-old girl in Kompong Svay district on Tuesday morning, said Leang Kel, deputy police chief of Kdei Daung commune.

The suspect, a neighbor of the victim, allegedly lured the girl in­side his house to rape her, Mr Kel said Thursday, adding that the victim’s mother filed a complaint with police. However, before police could investigate, the suspect’s sister told the 16-year-old that the pol­ice were coming.

“The sister of the suspect in­form­ed the suspect that police will come to arrest him, so the suspect fled before police arrive at the house,” he said.

“People nowadays are difficult to control; they do everything without respect for the law,” Mr Kel said, adding that the police are searching for the suspect and hoping to make an arrest.
