Kuching District police chief Abang Ahmad Abang Julai who confirmed the case said the arrest was made by the roadside at Jalan Wan Abdul Rahman at 10am on Oct 12 by a team from Kuching District Criminal Investigations Department (CID) led by ASP Austin Patrick Angkon.
Early investigations by the police revealed that the girl admitted to the sexual relationship that started in Dec 2016 after they connected on 'Wechat'.

Two mobile phones were seized from the suspect during the arrest and the case is being investigated under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape.
