NAKON PHANON – The Local police in That Phanom in Nakon Phanon Province have arrested a 40 year old father over the alleged rape of his 12 year old daughter.
The man, who was arrested on Wednesday evening, has a history of alcohol and substance abuse, police reported.
Police made the arrest after the man’s mother called local police at That Phanom.
According to Khaosod, the young girl had been abandoned by her mother as a young child and had been living with her father and grandmother in squalid conditions in the family home.
The grandmother allegedly told police that her son had raped his daughter on multiple occasions over a period almost one year.
As police investigated the complaint, a medical examination of the girl confirmed she had been raped.
The father was then arrested and whilst under police questioning, allegedly told officers that when he got drunk he would grope his daughter whilst also touching his genitals but denied that he had raped the girl.
The man remains behind bars awaiting further legal proceedings.
