SIBU: A 25-year old contractor in Mukah has been arrested for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl.

Mukah OCPD Dept Supt Jimmy Panyau said on Wednesday that the father of the girl had lodged a police report at 8.30am on Tuesday saying that his daughter had been raped by the suspect, who is her boyfriend.

The case came to light when the girl told one of her teachers of the matter.

"... this is considered statutory rape under Section 376 of the Penal Code as it involves a minor," said DSP Jimmy.

The rapes happened five times between February to September this year in Kampung Tanjung Tiong in Mukah.

The victim has been sent to Sibu Hospital for medical observation.

DSP Jimmy said the suspect was picked up from the workers' quarters located at Jalan Balingian-Mukah on Tuesday.

He has been remanded for seven days until Oct 4 to assist the police investigation.
