A Cambodian teenager was arrested for allegedly molesting a 5-year-old Khmer girl.
Identified only as “Phutta,” the 17-year-old construction worker was taken into custody Aug. 7 following a complaint filed by the child’s parents at Pattaya Police Station.
The parents said their girl had been upset and, when questioned, told them of the rape. The child said Phutta had threatened to kill her if she told anyone.
A medical examination confirmed the molestation.
The teen, who works with the couple at a construction camp, was picked up at their camp in North Pattaya. He denied the charges.
Police question the Cambodia teen about his alleged molesting of a 5-year-old girl.
