KUALA TERENGGANU, Malaysia - Another shocking sexual assault on a young victim has surfaced.
About a month ago, an 11-year-old boy allegedly raped a preschooler in Alor Gajah, Malacca.
In the latest case reported in Paka, Terengganu, an eight-year-old girl was allegedly sodomised by her stepbrother.
Sources close to the investigation into the latest case told The Star that the Primary Two pupil had complained of excruciating pain in her anus to her 45-year-old laboratory assistant aunt at 8pm on Dec 1.
The girl narrated her ordeal to her aunt saying that her 15-year-old stepbrother removed her clothes and inserted his private part into her.
The aunt then rushed her to hospital and lodged report at the Dungun police headquarters at 10.30pm the same day.
The victim claimed that her stepbrother took advantage of her when other family members were away.
The latest case served as a grim reminder to parents following the Alor Gajah case in which the suspect was probably the youngest sexual predator in the country.
In the incident on Nov 7, a neighbour informed the victim's mother that she discovered the victim to be partially naked when checking on the welfare of the other children at a babysitter's house.
After calming the victim down, the neighbour looked around the house and saw the boy, who is the babysitter's stepson, hiding behind the door of another room.
