KUALA LUMPUR: She had been living in a silent hell for four years due to being repeatedly raped by the very man who was supposed to raise and protect her.
Hours after she was raped again by her stepgrandfather on Friday morning, an alert relative noticed that something was disturbing the girl. After some coaxing, the teen revealed everything.
The teenager was later accompanied by the relative to the Kajang police station where the 15-year-old lodged a report.
The 68-year-old suspect was arrested the same day at his house in Sungai Chua and is being remanded for seven days by the police.
Kajang OCPD ACP Abdul Rashid Abdul Wahab explained that 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, after which they moved in with the man’s family.
“Then the girl’s mother passed away two years ago due to an illness, so the girl and her brothers were left in the care of their stepgrandparents,” 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 she had nowhere else to go,” he said, adding that the victim and her stepgrandmother sold keropok nearby for a living.
He said police would be recording statements from the victim’s brothers, stepmother and stepgrandmother.
