A 67-year-old deaf and mute man allegedly raped a teenaged girl three times. He also paid her between RM30 and RM40 for each time and threatened to slit her throat if she exposed him.
Last month, the 16-year-old victim went for a medical check-up at an Air Baloi clinic and discovered that she was 3 months’ pregnant. This was when she lodged a police report, claiming that the man had raped her since last October.
The victim had been raped in the suspect’s house the first time, and twice in a hut in an oil palm estate. The suspect has been arrested.
