Sabahan man held over alleged rape of minor

KUCHING: Police arrested a 24-year-old Sabahan man on Sunday after an underage girl claimed she was raped by him sometime last year.

District police chief ACP Abang Ahmad Julai, in a statement issued yesterday, said the arrest was made following a police report lodged by the mother of the 15-year-old victim last Saturday.

He said the girl’s mother had recently found out about her daughter’s relationship with the suspect and, upon questioning, learned that the teen had had sexual intercourse with the man at a hotel room at Abell Road here on Sept 1 last year.

Abang Ahmad added that at the time of incident, the victim and the suspect were both believed to be under the influence of alcohol after returning from an entertainment outlet.

The suspect is currently being held in the lockup pending further investigation under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape.
