Boy, 14, held over statutory rape of underage girlfriend

KUCHING: Police detained a 14-year-old boy in connection with the statutory rape of his 14-year-old girlfriend.

The boy was picked up by police on Tuesday following a police report lodged earlier the same day by the victim’s grandmother.

The grandmother in her report claimed the pair went out together at the end of last month and had checked into a homestay facility in Kota Sentosa.

Family members became suspicious after the boy sent the girl home and, suspecting she had engaged in sexual intercourse with him, decided to report the matter to the police.

The case is being investigated under Section 376 of the Penal Code for statutory rape.
