A 17-YEAR-OLD girl was sentenced to three years in jail for raping a 13-year-old boy in Shandong, reported China Press.
The girl, who befriended the boy on the instant messaging service QQ, allegedly drugged him before forcing herself on him at a hotel.
The girl and the boy had just met.
The girl claimed that she was tired and needed a rest. She then brought the boy to a nearby hotel where the incident took place.
> The daily also reported that two boys, aged eight and 10, were nabbed for allegedly stealing two handphones and a laptop from two shops at a shopping mall in Alor Setar.
A closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera in the shop caught them in the act.
The shop operator said the boys took the handphones when two of her employees were in the office while the third was busy repairing a handphone.
After studying the CCTV footage, she released the images to other traders in the shop.
The boys were later caught in a mall.
Prior to the arrest, the boys had also stolen a laptop. They claimed they were paid to steal the items.
The victim, known only as Azura, said she was raped at least three times.
She said the police told her that her mother could have been aware of the incidents and might have even received money from the suspect.
Azura, a telephone operator, said her father became bankrupt after his business failed when she was a teenager.
Her mother then had to work as a cleaner to support the family.
The suspect, she said, was very close to her mother and sometimes stayed overnight at their house.
“He forced himself on me one day when my family members were asleep. I tried to push him away but he threatened me and told me not to make any noise.
“He said if I did not follow his instructions or told anybody, he would harm my family,” she said.
Azura said the suspect outraged her modesty again two weeks later, and she was raped at least three to four times by him.
