An Australian man has been arrested for allegedly molesting his girlfriend’s 11-year-old daughter.
Ben Agame Ofar, 50, was apprehended Oct. 31 by Region 2 Child and Woman Protection police at his Carina Mansion apartment on Soi Nernplabwan. A bottle of body lotion allegedly used as a lubricant was collected as evidence.
The victim, a fifth grader at a Pattaya school, sought help from neighbors, claiming the Australian had raped her four times during his six-month relationship with her mother. Ofar allegedly had threatened the girl to keep her quiet, so she did not tell her mother.
Ben Agame Ofar has been arrested for child molestation and overstaying is visa.
Lt. Omsin Sukgarnka alleged Ofar had assaulted a number of underage children and that police had evidence of all the attacks.
Ofar denied the charges, but admitted to overstaying his visa. He was jailed on numerous charges while the child was transferred to the Chonburi Child and Family Home for physical and mental aid.
