KUCHING: A man, 24, who tested pos­i­tive for metham­phetamine ad­mit­ted to rap­ing his 15-year-old girl­friend at his home in Jalan Padun­gan since De­cem­ber 2016.

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'.

"The girl also ad­mit­ted that they had been go­ing out on dates and that she had missed school to go out with the sus­pect," said Abang Ah­mad yes­ter­day.

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.

Abang Ah­mad said the girl's mother found out about the rape when she was called to the school on Sept 29 to claim her daugh­ter's mo­bile phone which was con­fis­cated by the school's dis­ci­plinary teacher.

The dis­ci­plinary teacher had browsed through the mo­bile phone's photo gallery and was shocked to see pic­tures of the girl in bed with a man (sus­pect).
