A 14-year-old boy raped his 12-year-old neighbor on a cassava plantation in Battambang province on Wednesday after luring her away from her home, a police official said Thursday.
The teenager was arrested at his house in Sampov Loun district’s Serei Meanchey commune that afternoon and confessed to raping the girl, according to deputy district police chief Ly Rum.
“At about [noon], the girl’s mother left the house to visit her neighbor about 40 meters away and left her daughter alone,” Mr. Rum said.
“Unexpectedly, the boy arrived [at the victim’s house] and convinced the girl to visit the cassava plantation nearby,” he said. “The girl agreed to go with the suspect because he promised to give her as much money as she wanted.”
