Teen lodges police report after four years of rape by step-grandfather

KUALA LUMPUR: After four years of being raped repeatedly by her step-grandfather, a plucky 15-year-old decided that enough was enough.

The teen left her home in Sungai Chua and lodged a police report by herself at the Kajang police station Friday morning.

The 68-year-old man was arrested soon after and is being remanded for seven days by the police.

Kajang OCPD ACP Abdul Rashid Abdul Wahab said the girl and her two brothers (aged seven and 11) were orphans.

"The girl's father passed away when she was just four and her mother remarried another man, and came to live with her step family and the suspect.

"Then the girl's mother passed away two years ago due to an illness. The girl and the brothers were left in the care of their stepfather and step-grandparents," he said.

ACP Abdul Rashid said the suspect would wait until he was alone at home with the teenager.

"He would lock himself and the girl inside her room and would rape her. The girl never said anything to her family, friends or teachers because he was the one taking care of her and had no where else to go," he said.

He said police would be recording statements from the victim's brothers, stepmother and step-grandmother.

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